Irregular grid contour plots

Irregular grid contour plots

I have a set of data from thermocouples on an irregular grid and want to produce contour plot - any ideas how to convert the irregular grid to regular ???

The data changes with time - but I can handle that with an animation

RE: Irregular grid contour plots

Yes - I had thought of that.  It is the 2d interpolation that is tricky...

RE: Irregular grid contour plots

You could interpolate each column, and then each row, as 2d interpolations using a spline fit. that'll give you 2 Z values for each x and y, so take the average.

Crude, but it will work for smoothly varying data.

Otherwise Matlab et al offer a variety of solutions, as does the excellent xlxtrfun for Excel.
