Many real-world data sets can be viewed of as noisy samples of special types of metric spaces called metric graphs [16]. Building on the notions of correspondence and Gromov- Hausdorff distance in metric geometry, we describe a model for such data sets as an approximation of an underlying met- ric graph. We present a novel algorithm that takes as an input such a data set, and outputs the underlying metric graph with guarantees. We also implement the algorithm, and evaluate its performance on a variety of real world data sets.
