We have developed a geometrical method based on 3D Voronoi polyhedra and Delaunay tessellation for identifying and reconstructing clusters of galaxies in the next generation of deep, flux-limited redshift surveys. We here describe this algorithm and tests of it using mock catalogs that simulate the DEEP2/DEIMOS redshift survey, which will begin observations in the Spring of 2002 and will provide a detailed three dimensional map of the large scale structure up to redshift 1.5.
