Production of Optimized DEM Using IDW Interpolation Method (Case Study; Jam and Riz Basin-Assaloyeh)

K. Soleimani and S. Modallaldoust

In this research, preparing the optimized Digital Elevation Model (DEM)of Jam and Riz basin was studied by use of Inverse Distance Weighting (IDW) and utilization of GIS technique. Performing of IDW method depends on several factors including cell size, number of neighbor`s points, point searching radius and optimized power. On this basis, two Geostatistical methods were used for determination of points searching radius of standard ellipse and standard deviation ellipse. Considering the fixed cell size in network with value of 3 which represents weighting degree of points and with determining the rotation angle and measure of axis of standard deviation ellipse and calculation of optimized radius in standard ellipse by use of statistical method, then optimized power was automatically derived in ArcGIS 9.2 environment. In this method the number of neighbor`s points was selected with four repetition points of 3, 5, 7 and 15. However, 8 digital elevation models were gained after the mentioned processes. Finally, digital elevation models of 1 to 8 were compared with control points using compare means test in SPSS11.5 statistical software which shown the IDW-3 with the best conditions recommended as the optimized model. Although the results are showing a similar forms but from them IDW3 model has the lowest mean standard error of 0.26842 which is used seven neighbor points.
