Go to: Related nodes. Attributes.

This node returns the closest point of an (x,y,z) point (attribute "inPosition") to a surface (given by the attribute "inputSurface"). You can query the closest (x,y,z) point (attribute "position") or you can query the closest surface (u,v) point (given by attributes "parameterU" and "parameterV").
