Conforming Delaunay triangulations (CDTs) are a key requirement for quality Digital Terrain Modeling (DTM). In addition to just triangulating point data, a CDT allows to respect constraints and boundaries: edges and arbitrary shaped convex or concave holes, islands and outer bounds can become part of the triangulated surface while maintaining the Delaunay property.
