In Computer Aided Geometric Design (CAGD), it is often needed to produce a positivity-preserving curve according to the given positive data. The main focus of this work is to address the problem of visualizing positive data in such a way that its display looks smooth and pleasant. A rational cubic spline function with three shape parameters has been developed. Simple data dependent constraints are derived for single shape parameter to preserve the positivity through positive data. Remaining two
