For synthesizing ionospheric maps, it is proposed to use the method of "empirical orthogonal functions" instead of the inversion of the analysis schedule. For interpolating between grid points splining is not the only way. In particular, longitudinal interpolation by a low order Fourier development of the different eigenvectors components appears to be advantageous. Compared with the present synthesis method, important economies in storage capacity and computing time can be achieved.
