Interpolate Within a Topo Object

Share:

Description

Bilinear interpolation is used so that values will vary smoothly within a longitude-latitude grid cell. Note that the sign convention for longitude and latitude must match that in topo.

Usage

1
topoInterpolate(longitude, latitude, topo)

Arguments

longitude

Vector of longitudes (in the same sign convention as used in topo).

latitude

Vector of latitudes (in the same sign convention as used in topo).

topo

A topo object, i.e. inheriting from topo-class.

Value

Vector of heights giving the elevation of the earth above means sea level at the indicated location on the earth.
