In this paper, we present a new and simple method for fitting a spherelike surface to a set of data points in 3-space. In comparison to the standard method that involves using spherical harmonics, this method is conceptually simpler and computationally less complex and intensive, especially when used to address problems in which data is sparse or nonuniform.
