Short summary
In this paper, we presented a new method on the basis of a collocation and multi-quadric equation interpolation. We introduce a multi-quadric kernel function to determine the covariance of local deformation and use the method to be a simple approximation of the covariance function. We established a horizontal velocity field model for the Chinese mainland by using a set of observed velocity data of GPS stations. The result is simple and reasonable and has a significant reference value.
