    $\begingroup$ What do you know about interpolating onto any grid? Have you tried anything? $\endgroup$ – tpg2114 Mar 11 at 11:05

  • $\begingroup$ @tpg2114 I know about bi-linear and tri-linear interpolation onto a regular Cartesian mesh grid. I also understand how spline interpolation works. However ,based on bi-linear interpolation, I cannot understand how I would find the value of a function f at the point f(r0,theta0) knowing the values of f at every node on the grid. Would I just use weights for nearest neighbors? $\endgroup$ – Kostis Papadakis Mar 12 at 16:58
