Complex applications in fluid dynamics research often require more highly resolved velocity data than direct measurements or simulations provide. The advent of stereo PIV and PCMR techniques has advanced the state-of-the-art in flow velocity measurement, but 3D spatial resolution remains limited. Here a new technique is proposed for velocity data interpolation to address this problem. The new method performs with higher quality than competing solutions from the literature in terms of accurately interpolating velocities, maintaining fluid structure and domain boundaries, and preserving coherent structures.
