Let be an open submanifold of an affine algebraic variety. We can pick a point from by first choosing an affine-linear space of complementary dimension and then choosing one of the intersection points x. We propose distributions on the set of linear spaces and on the sets ℳ∩ℒ of intersection points such that the points x chosen with the procedure above are uniformly distributed. We do the same for the projective setting and demonstrate the proposed method in the context of topological data analysis.
