Right, but that's also not necessary -- it doesn't have to be an 
analytical expression, it simply needs to be a function where if I give 
you a point (x,y,z), you return to me a velocity (u,v,w). This may very 
well be a velocity that's interpolated between points, or simply the 
velocity from the nearest one of the points for which you know the velocity.

In other words, it just needs to be a function we can evaluate 
everywhere. It doesn't have to be known analytically.
