This function interpolates the pattern resolution and creates up to a 10 times higher resolution. This gives a smoother feel to the look of maps that are zoomed in to around 10km x 10km which would be otherwise pixelated.

NB. This is not recommended practice from CLIMsystems if you are going to query the map for data as it is not higher resolution data (does not lead to any downscaling) , however it is acceptable to use for clients that require the maps to be more visually appealing.

For state wide or regional maps the original resolution will be acceptable but for maps spanning only a few kilometres (see Figure 3 below) interpolation may be required.

NB. This interpolation is computationally intensive and could take minutes to several hours depending on how large an area you have selected and the computational power of your computer.

            1. – standard vs interpolated mapping outputs

1) Click the climate scenario button (see Figure 1)

2) Zoom to the area of interest where you want to interpolate the grid for aesthetic purposes

3) Click the generate area button, you will see the dialogue box Figure 4 click “show advanced”

4) Fill in the new area information as described in the sub - section above labelled “creating a new area”

5) In the advanced portion of the dialogue box do the following (Figure 5)

a) Toggle on the right hand button for “resolution”

b) Change the resolution field by to an integer between 2 and 10 inclusive. An input of 10 will interpolate the resolution to 10x greater.

c) Leave the “generate based on” setting as “window”

d) Ensure that “boundary file” is ticked in the “data to clone field at the bottom of the dialogue box

e) Click OK and the interpolation will begin.
