TIN Densification:  A DEM extraction method that builds a TIN surface from the initial set of user-supplied tie points, and then iteratively densifies the TIN object.  The process looks in the middle of each existing triangle and adds a new node when it finds a point of high correlation.  Then it recomputes the local topology and goes on to the next triangle.
