    • Dense and Scalable Reconstruction from Unstructured Videos with Occlusions 

      Wei, Jian; Resch, Benjamin; Lensch, Hendrik P. A. (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
      Depth-map-based multi-view stereo algorithms typically recover textureless surfaces by assuming smoothness per view, so they require processing different views to solve occlusions. Moreover, the highly redundant viewpoints ...
    • Improving Layout Quality by Mixing Treemap-Layouts Based on Data-Change Characteristics 

      Bethge, Joseph; Hahn, Sebastian; Döllner, Jürgen (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
      This paper presents a hybrid treemap layout approach that optimizes layout-quality metrics by combining state-of-the-art treemap layout algorithms. It utilizes machine learning to predict those metrics based on data metrics ...
    • Visualization of Neural Network Predictions for Weather Forecasting 

      Roesch, Isabelle; Günther, Tobias (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
      Recurrent neural networks are prime candidates for learning relationships and evolutions in multi-dimensional time series data. The performance of such a network is judged by the loss function, which is aggregated into a ...
    • Compression of Non-Manifold Polygonal Meshes Revisited 

      Buelow, Max von; Guthe, Stefan; Goesele, Michael (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
      Polygonal meshes are used in various fields ranging from CAD to gaming and web based applications. Reducing the size required for storing and transmitting these meshes by taking advantage of redundancies is an important ...
