Three commonly used techniques (inverse distance squared, linear interpolation, and kriging) for interpolating spatial data points were compared on the basis of robustness and accuracy. The results demonstrate that 1) kriging is a more robust contouring method; 2) kriging provides explicit measures of estimation accuracy; and 3) kriging balances the risks of misclassification (false positive and false negative error rates).
