# [SciPy-user] Interpolate 1D

```Hello,

scipy.interpolate.fitpack2.InterpolatedUnivariateSpline seems to be a 1d
interpolation method. I used the Cookbook/Rebinning-Example to
Interpolate. I don't know if it works with InterpolatedUnivariateSpline.

I also tried out scipy.interpolate.interpolate.interp2d. But I get an
error. Probably somebody knows what I'm doing wrong. Here's the script:

import scipy.interpolate

#just some data
a = numpy.zeros((4,4), dtype=''Float32')
oldx= numpy.arange(4)
oldy = numpy.arange(4)
newx = numpy.zeros((4), dtype=''Float32')
newy =numpy.zeros((4), dtype=''Float32')
for s in range(8):
newx[s] =  s * 0.5
newy[s] =  s * 0.5

#interpolation
intinst = scipy.interpolate.interpolate.interp2d(oldx, oldy, a, kind =
'cubic')
interpolated = intinst(newx, newy)

And here's the error:
/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/scipy/interpolate/interpolate.py in
__call__(self, x, y, dx, dy)
62         x = atleast_1d(x)
63         y = atleast_1d(y)
---> 64         z,ier=fitpack._fitpack._bispev(*(self.tck+[x,y,dx,dy]))
65         if ier==10: raise ValueError,"Invalid input data"
66         if ier: raise TypeError,"An error occurred"

AttributeError: interp2d instance has no attribute 'tck'

Greetings Maik
