BACKGROUND Estimating the Unknown Whats beneath the surface? Depth to bedrock, minerals, water Why Does it Matter? Construction, engineering and mining Accuracy of Digital Data Boreholes, wells, test pits, profiles

Interpolation Selection Methods Which one and why? Purpose of Study Confidential however Reference: Kumler, Felus, Meyer, samui, Verdee, Yilmaz INTERPOLATION The process of using known values at fixed locations to estimate unknown values at all other locations to derive a representative continuous surface. (KT Chang) Control Points Singular input to surface

Types of Interpolation: Local vs. Global Deterministic vs. Stochastic Exact vs. Inexact Reference: Chang, KT, OSullivan, Longley TYPES OF INTERPOLATION Trend Spline Thiessen Kriging IDW TIN Table Adapted From: Chang, KT. (Table 15.1)

Reference: Chang, KT, OSullivan, Longley TINS Triangulated Irregular Network Terrain modeling Control points Polygons Delauney Triangulation Logic Connect points Form triangles Triangle becomes planes Reference: Chang, KT, OSullivan, Longley, Kumler LINEAR INTERPOLATION

Local first order planar polynomial interpolation Convert TIN to raster Faces assume constant slope and aspect Cell value is a function of the XY (cell center) projected onto the face Reference: Chang, KT, OSullivan, Longley GEOSTATISTICAL INTERPOLATION Kriging Semivariogram Axes Semivariance Binning Anisotropic

Isotropic Models Nugget Range Sill Partial Sill Inset Image Reference: ArcGIS Online Resource Center Reference: Chang, KT, OSullivan, Longley GEOSTATISTICAL INTERPOLATION Ordinary Kriging Assumes the absence of drift Uses fitted semivariogram directly

Universal Kriging Assumes drift or trend in samples Reference: Chang, KT, OSullivan, Longley PROJECT METHODOLOGY Data preparation Subset data Interpolation workflows Iterations Accuracy evaluation Results aggregation

DATA ACCESS AND PREPARATION Data Access Data is currently in my possession Historic database containing over 500 borings Project study site Area of project Average depth Data Preparation Data will be reviewed for outliers and anomalies

Visual inspection Tabular inspection Regression surface comparison Spatial statistics Semivariogram SUBSET 100% starting sample (500 Borings) 75% used for interpolation (375 Borings) 25% used for validation (125 Borings) Randomly generated subsets LINEAR INTERPOLATION

75% sample for input Top of rock elevation values Points converted to TIN TIN to raster through linear interpolation GEOSTATISTICAL INTERPOLATION 75% sample of borings for interpolation Top of rock elevation values used for interpolation Semivariogram fitting Interpolation performed with ordinary kriging or universal kriging TBD Further data investigation required

Trend, visual, tabular, semivariogram, histograms ITERATIONS Python and GeoProcessing Methodology will be performed numerous times 1000 runs for each surface type Different Different Different Different 75% sampling every simulation 25% sampling every simulation

surfaces every simulation residuals every simulation Image Reference: ArcGIS Online Resource Center ACCURACY EVALUATION Validation (Cross-Validation) Actual vs. Estimated using 25% Subtract estimated from actual RMSE Available for exact local methods More than just an XY statistic Reference: Chang, KT, OSullivan, Longley RESULTS AGGREGATION

Consolidate boring differences for results Aggregate to a summary table Surface by surface After 1 run calculate RMSE for each surface After 1000 runs conclude which RMSE was more frequently lower Entire simulation After 1000 runs calculate RMSE for entire sampling (~125,000 residuals) Lower RMSE is the more accurate surface

Summary statistics Overall distribution, histogram, variance, etc Surface by Surface Method Entire Simulation Method ANTICIPATED RESULTS Optimistic results will be better with the kriging work flow given the large scale trends in the data. Conclusions will be made statistically TIN surfaces are traditionally less accurate and yield higher errors than those of the kriging method (Felus, 2005) Historical data poses potential issues Selection of appropriate semivariogram model 1000 time will be a challenge
