Description:
The Multilevel B-spline Approximation Library is used for quickly generating high-quality spline surfaces out from 2 1/2 D scattered data points. (2 1/2 D means that the points are scattered over the XY-plane, with an additional height value. The generated surface will thus be projectable on the XY plane without intersections). For a thorough description of the basic scheme, the paper by the originators of Multilevel B-splines, S. Lee, G. Wolberg and S. Y. Shin, should be consulted: S. Lee, G. Wolberg, and S. Y. Shin. Scattered data interpolation with multilevel B-splines. IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics, 3(3):229--244, 1997.A detailed description of the mathematical content of the algorithms, with extensions made in the SINTEF library and with numerical examples, can be found in the report:. Hjelle. Approximation of Scattered Data with Multilevel B-splines. Technical Report STF42 A01011, SINTEF 2001.
