The input data range

Boundary Vertices y

Input

XYRange

<optional>

Vertices of the boundary curve in XY plane. If this option is null, the input data boundary will be used.

Number of Points on Edge edge_pts

Input

int

50

Edge points on the boundary

Gridding Method method

Input

int

tps

Gridding method to interpolate Z value at mesh nodes
Option list:

  • renka:Renka Cline
  • shepard:Shepard
  • tps:Thin Plate spline
  • kriging:Kriging
  • wave:Weighted average
Quadratic Interpolant Locality Factor nq

Input

int

10

The quadratic interplant locality factor for Shepard gridding method. q is used to calculate the influence radius of local approximate quadratic fitted function for each node. By default, q equals 18.

Weight Function Locality Factor nw

Input

int

18

The weight function locality factor for Shepard gridding method (w) is used to calculate the weighting radius for each node. By default, w equals 9.

Search Radius kriging_radius

Input

double

2.0

Searching radius for control points

Search Radius average_radius

Input

double

2.0

Searching radius for control points

Minimum Points min_pts

Input

int

10

Minimum control points close to the nodes

Smoothing tps_smooth

Input

double

0.0

smooth factor that specifies the extent to which the gridding surface will depart from the input data point.

Smoothing kriging_smooth

Input

double

0

smooth factor that specifies the extent to which the gridding surface will depart from the input data point.

Description

Given a closed polygon boundary domain in the XY plane, this X-Function resample the XYZ data by generating interior mesh on the XY plane and interpolate the Z value by gridding. When meshing the polygon, delaunay triangulation was used.

Examples

1. Import Resample.dat in \\Samples\Data Manipulation folder.

2. Set column C as Z and D as X column, then column D, E will be used as boundary curve.

3. Type xyz_resample -d in the command window to bring up the dialog.

4. Select column A, B, C as Input and D, E as Boundary Vertices. Enter 50 to the Number of Points on Edge box.

5. Click OK to run the X-Function.
