This paper introduces an offset curve tracing methodology, with a spurious region correction (Fig. 1), for geometrical modeling and mesh generation. This methodology was implemented by generating an offset curve-tracing library to be used in any desired contour or curve data. In order to validate the proposed methodology, and associated computer implementations, a series of practical examples of the use of the offset curve generation library to the restoration of geological profiles, and to the implementation of restrictions on a finite element mesh generation are presented. An additional objective of this paper is to describe the main developments of a robust offset curve-tracing library made on a userfriendly environment.
