Nowadays the topic of sampling in a shift-invariant space is having a significant impact: it avoids most of the problems associated with classical Shannon's theory. Under appropriate hypotheses, any multivariate function in a shift-invariant space can be recovered from its samples at . However, in many common situations the available data are samples of some convolution operators acting on the function itself: this leads to the problem of multivariate generalized sampling in shift-invariant spaces. This extra information on the functions in the shift-invariant space will allow to sample in an appropriate sub-lattice of . In this paper an theory involving the frame theory is exhibited. Sampling formulas which are frame expansions for the shift-invariant space are obtained. In the case of overcomplete frame formulas, the search of reconstruction functions with prescribed good properties is allowed. Finally, approximation schemes using these generalized sampling formulas are included.
