Interpolation is the process of using known points in a geometry to approximate unknown points. Several spatial methods and predicates use interpolation when the calculations involve circular arcs. Interpolation turns a circular arc into a sequence of straight lines. For example, a circularstring representing a quarter arc might be interpolated as a linestring with 11 control points.
