  • Interactions with Gigantic Point Clouds 

    Scheiblauer, Claus (2014-06-25)
    During the last decade the increased use of laser range-scanners for sampling the environment has led to gigantic point cloud data sets. Due to the size of such data sets, tasks like viewing, editing, or presenting the ...
  • Strategies for efficient parallel visualization 

    Frey, Steffen (OPUS - Publication Server of the University of Stuttgart, 2014)
    Visualization is a crucial tool for analyzing data and gaining a deeper understanding of underlying features. In particular, interactive exploration has shown to be indispensable, as it can provide new insights beyond the ...
  • Edit Propagation using Geometric Analogies 

    Guerrero, Paul (2014-09-19)
    Modeling complex geometrical shapes, like city scenes or terrains with dense vegetation, is a time-consuming task that cannot be automated trivially. The problem of creating and editing many similar, but not identical ...
  • Quad Layouts – Generation and Optimization of Conforming Quadrilateral Surface Partitions 

    Campen, Marcel (2014-12)
    The efficient, computer aided or automatic generation of quad layouts, i.e. the partitioning of an object’s surface into simple networks of conforming quadrilateral patches, is a task that – despite its importance and ...
  • Adaptive Semantics Visualization 

    Nazemi, Kawa (2014-11-27)
    Human access to the increasing amount of information and data plays an essential role for the professional level and also for everyday life. While information visualization has developed new and remarkable ways for visualizing ...
  • Inverse rendering for scene reconstruction in general environments 

    Wu, Chenglei (Wu, Chenglei, 2014-07-10)
    Demand for high-quality 3D content has been exploding recently, owing to the advances in 3D displays and 3D printing. However, due to insufficient 3D content, the potential of 3D display and printing technology has ...
  • Understanding the Structure of 3D Shapes: PolyCubes and Curve-Skeletons 

    Livesu, Marco (Livesu, 2014-05-23)
    Compact representations of three dimensional objects are very often usedin computer graphics to create effective ways to analyse, manipulate andtransmit 3D models. Their ability to abstract from the concrete shapes andexpose ...
  • Kaleidoscopic imaging 

    Reshetouski, Ilya (Reshetouski, Ilya, 2014-11-06)
    Kaleidoscopes have a great potential in computational photography as a tool for redistributing light rays. In time-of-flight imaging the concept of the kaleidoscope is also useful when dealing with the reconstruction ...
  • Concepts and Algorithms for the Deformation, Analysis, andCompression of Digital Shapes 

    von Tycowicz, Christoph (von Tycowicz, 2014-05-05)
    We propose new model reduction techniques for the construction of reducedshape spaces of deformable objects and for the approximation ofreduced internal forces that accelerate the construction of a reduced dynamicalsystem, ...
  • High-Quality Real-Time Global Illumination in Augmented Reality 

    Kan, Peter (Kan, 2014-08-22)
    High-quality image synthesis, indistinguishable from reality, has been one of the most important problems in computer graphics from its beginning. Image synthesis in augmented reality (AR) poses an even more challenging ...
