For the further performance improvement of Cognitive Radio systems, providing accurate or comprehensive information support to Cognitive Radio devices or networks, there is a use of “Radio Environment Map (REM)”, which presents multi-dimensional information of radio environments and scenarios. With the study of Spatial Interpolation, a method of constructing REM is proposed, and the performance of each algorithm is compared. Experiments show that the RMSM algorithm has advantages like high efficiency and low error, which can be used for the construction of REM.
