I'm attempting to produce interpolated plots of water quality time-series data from ArcSDE. This is the data format:


90-------1---------WELL A-----19-24231----5/4/1966----CHLORIDE--------130

91-------1---------Well A-----19-24295------7/7/1966----CHLORIDE--------130

92-------2---------Well B-----19-24478----1/6/1967-----CHLORIDE---------122

93-------3---------Well C-----19-24597----5/5/1967-----CHLORIDE----------115

and onward for thousands of records. Each well has many records, and the sampling is erratic, some not being sampled for years. I've tried a few things, but I want to see if anyone else has encountered something similar and how they approached it.

are you having any particular problems with this? – Jay Guarneri Apr 3 '13 at 20:10
Nevermind. I realize there's not good enough spatial resolution to make the interpolation significant. I was trying to develop a streamlined process for querying the table from sde and developing interpolated rasters and time-series animations... – Craig Freeman Apr 4 '13 at 17:00
