Abstract:

The objective was to obtain and compare interpolation methods and contour plot techniques, based on data from sites whose locations are irregular or scattered. Data from the 1980 Fugro report on MX valley soil samples served as a test bed. Two groups of data, seismic p-wave velocities and surface soil depth were studied using six different interpolation methods and three different contour plot techniques. Comparison of the interpolation methods and of the contour plot techniques were made.
