comment What is the best technique for interpolating soil depth from sample points
I want to use Open Source if possible and I've done a bit of Python (I'm learning it so I can use GDAL/OGR and QGIS).

Yikes! I just KNEW this was going to be more complicated than just slapping a function on the data! I'm not a soil scientist but can you point me in the direction of any simple literature so that I can at least know how to speak to a soil scientist or know what caveats to put on my results? Thanks.

@whuber. Thanks for the correction wrt Euclidean allocation. Do you know any good sites with simple explanations to help me understand interpolation?

Yes, I want to create a new surface. I want to infer the depth over an area based on a number of point depth samples.
