Bathymetry interpolation

I probably got the idea for this in 2009 during my DARPA GeoStar project (2005-2009) from looking at trackline data and at how badly it was interpolated by existing methods.

There is no journal pub because we got sidetracked by other things. Pity.

Several other topics overlap this idea; browse around.

Some software is over on the software page.
