ShepardInterpolation

vtk-examples/Cxx/Visualization/ShepardInterpolation


Description

Use vtkShepardMethod to interpolate the scalars of a vtkPolyData. The zero-contour of the original and interpoltated scalars are extracted with vtkContourFilter. The original data is shown in red and the interpolated data in shown in yellow.

Usage:

ShepardInterpolation polydata [resolution]

where: - polydata is a polydata file with scalar data. - resolution is the sampling resoluton, default 100.

Download and Build ShepardInterpolation

Click here to download ShepardInterpolation and its CMakeLists.txt file. Once the tarball ShepardInterpolation.tar has been downloaded and extracted,

cd ShepardInterpolation/build

If VTK is installed:

cmake ..

If VTK is not installed but compiled on your system, you will need to specify the path to your VTK build:

cmake -DVTK_DIR:PATH=/home/me/vtk_build ..

Build the project:

make

and run it:

./ShepardInterpolation
