According to ESRI's help files, NN interpolation calculates a value for a "query point", yet the output is ofcourse a raster.
I understand how the value of this query point is calculated based on the Voronoi diagram, but how is the eventual raster generated?
Regarding IDW, ESRI's help does mention that "The specified fixed search radius will be used for each interpolated cell (cell center) in the study area".
Should i assume that the weights, and not only the search radius itself, are calculated from the cell center?
Should i then assume that NN also refers to the centers of cells?
I have run my own experiments and my conclusion is that yes, the weights for IDW are calculated from the center of each cell, and for NN the "query point" is stationed in the center of the raster cell. Perhaps later i will add my calculations.
