[{"abstract":[{"lang":"eng","text":"Given a finite point set in R, the surface reconstruction problem asks for a surface that passes through many but not necessarily all points. We describe an unambigu- ous definition of such a surface in geometric and topological terms, and sketch a fast algorithm for constructing it. Our solution overcomes past limitations to special point distributions and heuristic design decisions."}],"quality_controlled":0,"publisher":"Springer","doi":"10.1007/978-3-642-55566-4_17","year":"2003","day":"23","author":[{"full_name":"Herbert Edelsbrunner","last_name":"Edelsbrunner","id":"3FB178DA-F248-11E8-B48F-1D18A9856A87","first_name":"Herbert","orcid":"0000-0002-9823-6833"}],"date_updated":"2019-04-26T07:22:30Z","date_published":"2003-06-23T00:00:00Z","type":"book_chapter","page":"379 - 404","publication_status":"published","title":"Surface reconstruction by wrapping finite sets in space","_id":"3573","status":"public","publication":"Discrete & Computational Geometry","publist_id":"2812","date_created":"2018-12-11T12:04:02Z","main_file_link":[{"url":"http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/summary?doi=10.1.1.129.3633","open_access":"0"}],"month":"06","extern":1,"citation":{"ieee":"H.
