I have written a package SurfaceGraphics3D.m that will take data
in the form {{x1,y1,z1}, ... ,{xN,yN,zN}} and plot a surface over
it.

I have a related package TriangularInterpolate.m that will do this.

Both of these packages are based on some MathLink delaunay triangulation
code.   All the code is available in a set of packages I wrote called
ExtendGraphics which is available from MathSource item number 0207-324.
