Graphical Abstraction and Progressive Transmission in Internet-based 3DGeoinformationsystems
(Volker Coors, 2003)
The aim of this thesis was to eliminate essential deficits in the use of previous 3D GIS in an openly distributed GIS infrastructure. The increasing availability of three-dimensional city models poses a special problem, ...
Alves dos Santos, Luiz: Asymmetric and Adaptive Conference Systems for Enabling Computer-Supported Mobile Activities
(Alves dos Santos, Luiz Manoel, 2003)
This work was conducted at the Darmstadt University of Technology, essentially between 1998 and 2002. Before and during this period, I was working at the INI-GraphicsNet, Darmstadt, first in the Zentrum für Graphische ...
Efficient, Image-Based Appearance Acquisitionof Real-World Objects
(Lensch, Hendrik Peter Asmus, 2003-12-15)
Two ingredients are necessary to synthesize realistic images: an accurate rendering algorithm and, equally important, high-quality models in terms of geometry and reflection properties. In this dissertation we focus ...
Efficient Acquisition, Representation, and Rendering of Light Fields
(Schirmacher, Hartmut, 2003-12-16)
In this thesis we discuss the representation of three-dimensional scenes using image data (image-based rendering), and more precisely the so-called light field approach. We start with an up-to-date survey on previous ...
A Head Model with Anatomical Structure for Facial Modeling and Animation
In this dissertation, I describe a virtual head model with anatomical structure. The model is animated in a physics-based manner by use of muscle contractions that in turn cause skin deformations; the simulation is ef ...
