Fast Polygonal Approximation of Terrains and Height Fields
Michael Garland and Paul Heckbert
http://graphics.cs.uiuc.edu/~garland/CMU/scape/
Several algorithms for approximating terrains and other height fields using polygonal meshes are described, compared, and optimized. These algorithms take a height field as input, typically a rectangular grid of elevation data H(x,y), and approximate it with a mesh of triangles, also known as a triangulated irregular network, or TIN. The algorithms attempt to minimize both the error and the number of triangles in the approximation. Michael Garland and Paul Heckbert.
