Interpolate 2D (Gridded » Bicubic Spline) (G Dataflow)

Version:
Last Modified: December 18, 2017

Performs two-dimensional interpolation on gridded points by using the bicubic spline interpolation method.

Use the bicubic spline method to perform interpolation along one axis using the cubic spline method and then along the other axis using the cubic spline method. The bicubic spline method ensures that the first and second partial derivatives of the interpolation polynomials are continuous.

z

Tabulated values of the dependent variable.

datatype_icon

x

Tabulated values of the independent variable in the x domain.

This input accepts a 1D or 2D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers.

All interpolation methods require that x be monotonic along each row, and all rows must be identical. Otherwise, this node uses only the first row of x to perform the interpolation. If x is not empty, the number of columns in x must equal the number of columns in z. If x is empty, this node treats x as an array whose size equals the size of z and whose rows are [0, 1, …, N - 1], where N is the number of columns in z.

datatype_icon

y

Tabulated values of the independent variable in the y domain.

This input accepts a 1D or 2D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers.

All interpolation methods require that y be monotonic along each column, and all columns must be identical. Otherwise, this node uses only the first column of y to perform the interpolation. If y is not empty, the number of rows in y must equal the number of rows in z. If y is empty, this node treats y as an array whose size equals the size of z and whose columns are [0, 1, …, M - 1]T , where M is the number of rows in z.

datatype_icon

ntimes

Number of times that this node interpolates values repeatedly and evenly between each x and y element to generate xi used and yi used.

ntimes determines the locations of the interpolation values. If you wire data to xi or yi, this node ignores ntimes.

Default: 1

datatype_icon

error in

Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

Standard Error Behavior

Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

Default: No error

datatype_icon

xi

Values of the independent variable in the x domain where interpolated values of the dependent variable are to be computed.

This input accepts a 1D or 2D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers.

xi and yi must be the same size.

datatype_icon

yi

Values of the independent variable in the y domain where interpolated values of the dependent variable are to be computed.

This input accepts a 1D or 2D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers.

xi and yi must be the same size.

datatype_icon

zi

Interpolated values of the new points that correspond to the independent variable values.

datatype_icon

xi used

Values of the first independent variable at which interpolated values of the dependent variable are computed.

If you wire data to xi, xi used returns xi unchanged. Otherwise, xi used returns an array with identical rows of 2ntimes - 1 points located evenly between each two adjacent elements in the first row of x, and the number of rows in xi used equals the number of rows in yi used.

datatype_icon

yi used

Values of the second independent variable at which interpolated values of the dependent variable are computed.

If you wire data to yi, yi used returns yi unchanged. Otherwise, yi used returns an array with identical columns of 2ntimes - 1 points located evenly between each two adjacent elements in the first column of y, and the number of columns in yi used equals the number of columns in xi used.

datatype_icon

error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.
