This tool converts VTK unstructured grids (*.vtu) into TIN-format usable in geographic information systems (GIS). The TIN-format stores triangular irregular networks which can be considered a subclass of triangulated 2D meshes. The VTU-format can store a large variety of unstructured mesh types, but only 2D triangle meshes can be converted using this tool.
