We present a method for extracting feature curves called crest lines from a triangulated surface. Then, we calculate the geodesic Voronoi diagram of crest lines to segment the surface into several regions. Afterward, barycentric surface flattening using theory from graph embeddings is implemented and, using the Geodesic Voronoi diagram, we develop a faster surface flattening algorithm.
