Abstract
A new method for lessening skew in mapped and submapped meshes is presented. This new method involves progressive subdivision of a surface into loops consisting of four sides. Using these loops, matching constraints can be set on the curves of the surface, which will propagate interval assignments across the surface, allowing a mesh with a better skew metric to be generated
