Abstract:

The problem investigated by this research was For a fixed number and scatter of known data points from a geographical distribution with unknown spatial variation, that automated first-stage interpolation algorithm should a cartographer use to most faithfully map the distribution isarithmically. The conclusions, based on an empirical study, state the most effective first-stage algorithm to use with different levels of numbers of known data points and scatters of known data points.
