surface approximation based on surface normals

Hi everyone,
For a rectangularly spaced grid I know at every grid point the surface normal. Additionally, I know the function value at one grid point. What would be a good strategy if I want to find the actual surface that has the specific surface normals.

Since this seems to be a common problem in computer graphics I hope someone can guide me in the right direction. Are there any algorithms know to work well for this kind of problem?

Best Regards,
