Subdivision surfaces have been widely used in computer graphics and can be classified into two categories, approximating and interpolatory. Representative approximating schemes are Catmull-Clark (quad) and Loop (triangular). Although widely used, one issue remains with the approximating schemes, i.e., the process of interpolating a set of data points is a global process so it is difficult to interpolate large data sets. In this paper, we present a local interpolation scheme for quad subdivision
