(The Eurographics Association, 2022)This paper presents an approach to layout static components of user interfaces as hand-drawn compositions of simple geometric shapes, using sketch recognition and visual languages. The system uses a visual grammar built ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2022)ln this article, several algorithms for the collision detection between a point and a polygon on a plane are presented. Coverings by triangles and barycentric coordinates are used. Temporal and geometric coherence are ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2022)This paper presents a new approach to classify, index and retrieve technical drawings by content. Our work uses spatial relationships, visual elements and high-dimensional indexing mechanisms to retrieve complex drawings ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2022)Real 3D data acquired from scanning technology provide interesting 3D models for research and industrial applications. However before these models can be used, a surface needs to be jitted to a point cloud of an unknown ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2022)We present a software-based method for alignment of projectors, both for side-by-side (mosaic) and stereo projections. The projectors are assumed to be positioned in such a way that their axes are not perpendicular to the ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2022)Volumetric data can be represented as a rectilinear structured grid and can be displayed by the rendering of an isosurface that is built from the grid and defining a threshold value. The know marching cubes method builds ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2022)ln this paper the visualization of hybrid scenes that contain volume data anda fitted extracted surface is addressed. The proposed algorithm is based on a integrated octree-based representation: the "Hybrid Octree ". The ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2022)This paper presents the use of a technique known as solar envelope in the simulation of building potential of urban plots as well as the improvement of 2D and 3D visualization techniques of simulation results. The consideration ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2022)Visibility determination is a requirement to navigate through complex scenes. Occluder fusion algorithms generate convex occluders that are contained in the umbra cast by a group of objects given an area light. Hoops are ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2022)This paper describes a novel approach to implement multimedia access platforms: reconfigurable oriented codesign. Nowadays we observe a rapid and mutant evolution of multimedia standards and its de facto adoption into many ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2022)ln spite of recent advances in Computer Aided Design, Graphical User Interfaces (GUJ) are, by and large, still at the stage of the so-called WIMP (Window, Icon, Menu, Pointing device) approach. ln recent years, our research ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2022)Radiosity computation on scenes including objects with a complex geometry, or with a large number of faces and meshes with very different sizes, is very complex. We presenta new method (based on the Photon Maps method ) ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2022)We present a general computational architecture that solves the problem of the production of physical-based virtual textiles and garments (so called electronic garments or e-garments), applicable in lnternet-based ...
