[vtkusers] Adding points to a vtkPolyData

Dear VTK users,

I would like to insert a new point in an existing vtkPolyData (triangle 
mesh). This new point is located somewhere in a vtkCell and has some 
scalar values associated with it. I would like now to subdivide the 
vtkCell creating 3 new triangles and assign the scalar information from 
my point to the new vertex in the vtkPolyData. I have to repeat the 
process for a couple of points. In the end, I will have a vtkPolyData 
with n vertices and m (m<n) vertices will have associated scalar 
information. My second question would then be how VTK deals with 
incomplete information?
