General Gridding Recommendations

The following list gives you a quick overview of each gridding method and some advantages and disadvantages in selecting one method over another.

 

Some gridding methods, such as Natural Neighbor, do not generate grid node values outside the data by default. To make any gridding method not generate grid node values outside the data, check the Assign NoData outside convex hull of data option. Any grid nodes outside the data boundary are automatically assigned the NoData value.
