Accuracy of interpolation techniques for the derivation of digital elevation models in relation to landform types and data density


The aim of this study is to evaluate the effects of landform types, the density of original data, and interpolation techniques on the accuracy of DEM generation. Five interpolation techniques (inverse distance weighting, ordinary kriging, universal kriging, multiquadratic radial basis function, and regularized spline with tension), commonly used in recent geomorphological research were applied. The results indicate that the accuracy of interpolation techniques for DEM generation should be tested not only in relation to landform types and data density but also to their applicability to multi-scales
