interpolation

1. n. [Reservoir Characterization]
The assignment of values to points intermediate to two data points. Linear interpolation plots values along a straight line between the values of the two nearest data points. Other interpolation techniques involve other functions. Interpolation is used to fill in missing data in well logs and other data sets. It may also be used to assign values to grid elements in maps.
