why do I get a strange result with griddata cubic?

4 views (last 30 days)
Hi! I used the griddata cubic interpolation for the values of an image. I get this image that has a much higher range, from -300 to 400 aproximately. The non processed image has a range from 90 to 130. Any ideas why this happens?Thanks!

The code you've posted does not run, I'm afraid:
Unrecognized function or variable 'x'.
Error in test (line 12)
vq_4 = griddata(x,y,C,xq,yq,'cubic');

This is expected behavior when there are sharp edges, especially with a surrounding flat area.

-A-
Especially if the region near B is dense, but the edge itself is sparse, then the polynomial generated near the edge needs to mathematically dip down below the base in order to gain the necessary steepness to match the flat control points to the left together with the high points to the right. Polynomials cannot just suddenly rise steeply without a leading edge, so the math needs to insert a downward edge to be able to rise from.
