In this paper some insights into the behavior of interpolation functions for resampling high resolution satellite images are presented. Using spatial and frequency domain characteristics, splines interpolation performance is compared to nearest-neighbor, linear and cubic interpolation. It is shown that splines interpolation injects spatial information into the final resample image better than the other three methods. Splines interpolation is also shown to be faster than cubic interpolation when the former is implemented with the LU decomposition algorithm for its tridiagonal system of linear equations. Therefore, if the main purpose for high resolution satellite resampling is to obtain an optimal smooth final image, intuitive and experimental justifications are provided for preferring splines interpolation to nearest-neighbor, linear and cubic interpolation.
