Triangular Bsplines are powerful and flexible in modeling a broader class of geometric objects defined over arbitrary, nonrectangular domains. Despite their great potential and advantages in theory, practical techniques and computational tools with triangular Bsplines are lessdeveloped. This is mainly because users have to handle a large number of irregularly distributed control points over arbitrary triangulation. In this paper, an automatic and efficient method is proposed to generate visually pleasing, highquality triangular Bsplines of arbitrary topology. The experimental results on several real datasets show that triangular Bsplines are powerful and effective in both theory and practice.
