Research: Point Based Graphics


With the growing size of captured 3D models it has become increasingly important to provide basic efficient processing methods for large unorganized raw surface-sample point data sets. In this project we introduce a novel stream-based and out-of-core geometry processing framework. The proposed approach processes points in an orderly sequential way by sorting them and sweeping along a spatial dimension. The major advantages of this new concept are: (1) support of extensible and concatenable local geometry processing operators called stream operators, (2) low main-memory usage and (3) applicability to process very large data sets out-of-core.
