Rotational Sampling

Dear colleagues,

I am looking for an algorithm which gives me a uniform, non-redundant, sampling
of the rotation function based on a equal stepsize in all three directions. I
know that a lot of people have already designed such an algorithm, thus in
order to prevent me from re-doing other (wo)mans work, I am posting this
question on the net. Results can be either Euler-, Lattman-, spherical angles,
quaternions or the rotation matrices themselves. Can anyone be of help?

Thanks for the effort,

Nick Blom
