I've just spotted an interesting issue with the TIN interpolation code.

With the TIN interpolation "linear" method, the rendering is fine (tin-linear.png), but with the "cubic" method, the code inserts 0 values instead of nodata until it hits the first non-nodata value (see the black part at the top of tin-cubic.png).

Marco, you are our only hope ;) I've looked into the code, but couldn't get my way through it.

Here's a simple test dataset. To replicate the above screenshot, use the "temp" field against a TIN interpolation alg using the cubic method.

Hi Mathieu

Oh, that code is still in use? Most parts of the interpolation code are older than the QGIS project and not maintained anymore. I think you should replace it with a newer library for TIN/IDW interpolation.
