Over the last few years, a strong interest in methods for 3D similarity search has arisen, and a growing number of competing algorithms for content-based retrieval of 3D objects have been proposed.  ...  We survey feature-based methods for 3D retrieval, and we propose a taxonomy for these methods. We also present experimental results, comparing the effectiveness of some of the surveyed methods.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We thank the editors of ACM Computing Surveys and the anonymous referees for their helpful comments on the earlier version of this article.  ...

Visualization and Analysis of Second-Order Tensors: Moving Beyond the Symmetric Positive-Definite Case

A. Kratz, C. Auer, M. Stommel, I. Hotz
2012 Computer graphics forum (Print)  
The basic idea of this method is to use anisotropic sample distributions for the efficient computation of anisotropic Voronoi cells, which then are used as base elements for texture mapping.  ...  Hence, the usage of textures to encode the tensor's various degrees of freedom becomes possible.  ...  A general and efficient solution of their approach for the 3D case, however, is still missing.  ...
