I am afraid my math knowledge goes only to a certain point here (too
few it seems).
In my usecase I am trying to define a terrain model from sparse points
(lidar elevation points).
So my idea was to get a set of points (given X, Y, Z) to define the
parameters of the equation and then be able to calculate an elevation
(Z) for any position I need interpolated.
I would then expect to have an exact value once the parameters are defined.
I am not sure how to find the parameters though...
Cheers,
Andrea
