Scattered data interpolation is an essential part of bidimensional empirical mode decomposition (BEMD) of an image. In the decomposition process, local maxima and minima of the image are extracted at each iteration and then interpolated to form the upper and the lower envelopes, respectively. The number of two-dimensional intrinsic mode functions resulting from the decomposition and their properties are highly dependent on the method of interpolation. Though a few methods of interpolation have

This paper evaluates the performance of some of the widely used surface interpolation techniques to identify one or more good choices of such methods for envelope estimation in BEMD. The interpolation techniques studied in this paper include various radial basis function interpolators and Delaunay triangulation based interpolators. The analysis is done first using a synthetic texture image and then using two different real texture images. Simulations are made to focus mainly on the effect of interpolation methods by providing less or negligible control on the other parameters or factors of the BEMD process.
