[SciPy-user] 2D interpolation from a set of irregularly spaced

Hey Eric,

We recently wrapped toms 526:

    Algorithm 526: Bivariate Interpolation and Smooth Surface Fitting 
for Irregularly Distributed Data Points

        It is available here:          http://www.netlib.no/netlib/toms/526
        Algorithm paper info here:     

The wrapper is "good enough" for what we needed, but hasn't gotten the 
attention it needs to go into SciPy yet.  So, I've attached the code as 
a zip file.  If you are on windows, the binaries are included for you.  
Otherwise, run setup.py. 

    Here is what I usually do when testing:  setup.py build_ext --inplace

example2.py provides an example of using the algorithm. 

There is also a png file showing a plot of the results from example2.py.

hope that helps,
