How to deal with noisy data in a mesh free Galerkin method

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

I'm currently working with a particle tracking velocimetry method, specifically trying to extract shear and vorticity data from the non-gridded velocity results. Of several methods used, the most efficient and accurate was based on a non-Sibsonian element free method. Unlike a more typical Galerkin problem which finds displacements by solving a PDE, this method uses the displacements of natural neighbors to find local flow gradients.
