One way...(not necessarily the best :) ) presuming that the "every 2 points" means in both directions given the resulting size of output for the described input. Similar works w/ filter() for the vector case.
m4=filter2(ones(2)/4,z); m4=m4(1:2:end,1:2:end);
Hint: look up 2D convolution... :)
accumarray() could be you friend amongst other ways to attack it...
