```Below I give a set of 3D points and attempt to plot them as a surface
using ListPlot3D. I also plot the points directly using Graphics3D.
The data fill a region that is approximately a trapezium except that
one side is concave. ListPlot3D extrapolates the concave side out to
the convex hull of the x -y coordinates thus giving a false impression
of the surface. How can I make the plotting region conform to the data
and exclude the extrapolation?

Thanks for any suggestions
