The new addon v.surf.tps performs multivariate thin plate spline
interpolation of sparse points with smoothing. If you ever wondered
why worldclim data (http://worldclim.org) follow so nicely elevation,
the reason is multivariate thin plate spline interpolation of
meteorological station data with elevation as a covariate. The module
can also be used for gap filling of remote sensing data, e.g. MODIS
LST reconstruction of cloud-covered areas, after fine-tuning the
module's parameters. The module works only with GRASS 7.2+.
