Representing Topography with Second-Degree Bivariate Polynomial Functions Fitted by Least Squares.
Neuman, Arthur Edward
Journal of Geological Education, v35 n5 p271-74 Nov 1987
There is a need for abstracting topography other than for mapping purposes. The method employed should be simple and available to non-specialists, thereby ruling out spline representations. Generalizing from univariate first-degree least squares and from multiple regression, this article introduces bivariate polynomial functions fitted by least squares. Computer software is available to solve most of the calculations. (RH)
