Scattered data technique is important to visualize the geometrical images of the surface data especially for terrain, earthquake, geochemical distribution, rainfall etc. The main objective of this study is to visualize the terrain data by using cubic Ball triangular patches. First step, the terrain data is triangulated by using Delaunay triangulation. Then partial derivative will be estimated at the data points. Sufficient condition for C 1 continuity will be derived for each triangle. Finally,
