I'm using Arcmap 10 and I have scattered points (denser in an area). Each point represents a thickness value of a simulated avalanche deposit. I want to get a raster from this points which I will transform in polygons (raster-to-polygons). Which is the best interpolation tool for this operation?
I tried them and I saw the "kriging" tool is the one which gives me the best "overlapping"* (i.e., the values of the points and the resulting raster coincide). Is this an appropriate way of establishing which tool is the one that suits better to my case?
Below, there is the image of the points superimposed on the raster obtained from them with the kriging interpolation.
