    We present a technique to convert a digital hologram of a three-dimensional object into a surface profile of the object. A depth-from-defocus technique is used to generate a depth map for a particular reconstructed perspective of the scene. The Fresnel transform is used to effect defocus. This depth map is then used to create an extended focused image of the object. Through the combination of the extended focused image and the depth map we are able to reconstruct a pseudo three-dimensional representation of the object. Our method produces depth maps of a significantly higher resolution than current autofocus methods. The technique could be used in registration and three-dimensional object recognition applications.
