I have been using griddedInterpolant for a long time now. But, starting today, I got the following warning:
Warning: Query data is in MESHGRID format, NDGRID format will yield better performance.
Convert your query data (Xq, Yq) as follows:
F = griddedInterpolant(. . .);
Xq = Xq'; Yq = Yq';
Vq = F(Xq,Yq);
I searched but have not found any discussion about this performance issue. I am hoping that someone out there can help.
Note that I am fully aware of the difference between MESHGRID and NDGRID formats. I am curious about why the NDGRID format provides an advantage.
My guess is that it has to do with column vs row operations.

Presumably because ndgridded query data will result in the data being looped through with better memory locality.
