To fill up intermediate terms of, as of a series, according to the law of the series; to introduce, as a number or quantity, in a partial series, according to the law of that part of the series; to estimate a value at a point intermediate between points of knwon value. Compare extrapolate.
To calculate or estimate values between two known values in a set of data.
Estimate the values of known ideas in a given range
To fill in gaps in a time series by estimates when data is missing.
to estimate an unknown quantity within the limits of what is already known (in contrast, see extrapolate).
A method for estimating data points that fall between points of actual measurement. For example, if the data for 1992 and 1994 are 5 and 10 respectively, one could interpolate from that data that the value was 7.5 (at the midpoint) in 1993.
to find and estimate of an intermediate value between two given values (in a sequence), based on the prevailing pattern or tendency (often a proportion) of the original values
To estimate values between measured values, usually using a mathematical function. Spatial interpolation involves estimating values on a map.
A process for estimation the difference between two known values. Resizing-up by considering the individual pixel and the surrounding area of pixels. Interpolation averages existing pixels to create new pixels. Takes longer than replication. Can soften the image definition and make it blurry.
to estimate or approximate a value between two given values.
to estimate a value within an interval between two known values
to find an intermediate value between two known values (in a set of values), based on a specific pattern, e.g., a proportional amount (used in linear interpolation), of the original values
To interpolate is to insert values in between. This is frequently used in the context of estimating intermediate values of an unknown function where discrete values are known.
