interpolate N-D scattered data using the inverse distance weighted interpolation method
listlist, Array, Matrix, Vector, or list of m n-dimensional sample points where each inner list or row represents one point. For a Vector or plain list, n is 1.
list, Array, or Vector of sample values
(optional) the radius parameter; the default is infinity
evaluate f at (x1,...,xn)
a k x n Matrix of points at which to evaluate f
The InverseDistaneWeightedInterpolation command creates a function f⁡x1,...,xn=value which can then be evaluated at arbitrary points in Rn.
This interpolant is defined at the point x as the weighted average of the values valuesi, where each value is weighted by the inverse of the distance between pointsi and x, and only points at distance at most r of x are used.
By default, r is infinity, so all sample points will be used to interpolate a query point.
If no points lie within distance r, the interpolated value will be Float⁡undefined.
For sufficiently large r, this interpolation method produces a C1 continuous interpolant.
This interpolation method does not introduce local minima or maxima which are not already present in the input data.
f can be evaluated at every point in Rn, but results for points far away from the sample points may not be meaningful.
As with all interpolation methods, the interpolant f always passes through all of the sample values.
Input sample points must not contain duplicates. The presence of duplicate points can lead to unexpected results.
In order to evaluate f at k points, you can put each point in a row of a Matrix M and call f(M) to obtain the k values of f in a k-element Vector. This will be most efficient if M's options are such that its datatype is float, its order is C_order, and its storage is rectangular.

The Interpolation[InverseDistanceWeightedInterpolation] command was introduced in Maple 2018.
