densification: Densification of vector lines adds vertices to a line to enforce a particular shape generated by splining.  TIN densification is the process of adding nodes to a TIN object based on some criterion, such as highest deviation from a planar surface in an underlying DEM or correlation between a stereo pair of DEMs.  (See also: TIN densification.)
