Can the confidence error of an IDW interpolated raster be calculated?
No; IDW is a deterministic interpolation. Deterministic approaches do not have any way of calculating a confidence surface. These techniques analyze the neighbors and predict a value.
Compare this to Kriging, a geostatistical approach based on probability. From probability, a confidence surface can be created.
