Abstract
Geometric trimming of surfaces results in a new

mathematical description of the matching surface.

This matching surface is required to closely

resemble the remaining portion of the original

surface. Typically, the approximation error in

such cases is measured with a view to minimize it.

The data associated with the error between two

matching surfaces is large and needs to be

filtered into meaningful information.This research

looks at suitable norms for achieving this data

reduction or abstraction with a view to provide

quantitative feedback about the approximation

error. Also, the differences between geometric

shapes are easily discerned by the human eye but

are difficult to characterize or describe. Error

visualization tools have been developed to provide

effective visual inputs that the designer can

interpret into meaningful information.
