Department of Mechanical Engineering Definition - Interpolation Interpolate —To estimate a missing value by taking an average of known values at neighboring points. Answers the need to fit a function to a collection of scattered data points. Interpolation is used in many engineered processes: When a flatbed scanner converts light into electrical current When a digital camera captures events for image displays In mapping and cartography In molecular imaging and modeling In audio waveform synthesis
