Interpolation is a method of estimating values between known data points. Use interpolation to smooth observed data, fill in missing data, and make predictions. Curve Fitting Toolbox™ functions allow you to perform interpolation by fitting a curve or surface to the data. For more information, see Interpolation Methods.
To fit an interpolating curve or surface, use the Curve Fitter app. Fit an
interpolating curve or surface at the command line by using the
fit function. For
information on choosing an interpolant fit, see Selecting an Interpolant Fit.
