However, if the surface is simplified based on both a geometric error AND a DATA ERROR, our goal is achieved. Here, the triangles are large except where either the surface or its data varies rapidly. Thus, the rectangular footprint is maintained while still reducing surface complexity by 6X, resulting in a 6X graphics speedup. However, calculation time is further increased (significantly) for this simplification step. This would likely preclude interactive dose mapping.
