Interpolation using spline with barriers

Discussion created by andyfto on Dec 22, 2010
I don't normally use ArcGIS for my surface creation but I have been giving it a try recently with some mixed results. It is the inclusion of faults which is giving me the biggest problems, I have included an image below which shows the surface with the polyline faults.

This next image shows what happens when I contour the surface using the contour with barriers option.

Can anyone help me with what I am doing wrong, my input dataset is 2d velocity data from a multipoint shapefile. I have gridded this data in another software package no problem I just can't get it to work in Arc.
