Abstract:

An effort to develop techniques to evaluate contour-to-grid interpolation algorithms. The use of synthetic surfaces as tool is explored. A set of synthetic surfaces is generated using Fourier Series to represent terrain with different degrees of ruggedness each surface represented by an equation of the form ZFX,Y. The results of a contour-to-grid interpolation can then be evaluated by comparison with the true elevations, the elevations calculated from the synthetic surfaces. Author
