Summary We present a survey of recent methods for creating piecewise linear mappings between triangulations in 3D and simpler domains such as planar regions, simplicial complexes, and spheres. We also discuss emerging tools such as global parameterization, inter-surface mapping, and parameterization with constraints. We start by describing the wide range of applications where parameterization tools have been used in recent years. We then briefly review the pertinent mathematical background and terminology, before proceeding to survey the existing parameterization techniques. Our survey summarizes the main ideas of each technique and discusses its main properties, comparing it to other methods available. Thus it aims to provide guidance to researchers and developers when assessing the suitability of different methods for various applications. This survey focuses on the practical aspects of the methods available, such as time complexity and robustness and shows multiple examples of parameterizations generated using different methods, allowing the reader to visually evaluate and compare the results.
