We introduce a novel implicit approach for surface patch segmentation in 3D images starting from a single point.  ...  First, Using a front propagation approach from the source point chosen by the user, one can see that the closed curve corresponds to valley line of the arrival time from the source point.  ...  Acknowledgement We would like to thank Stéphane Bonneau for his contributions, and Professor Anthony J. Yezzi for interesting discussions. Financial support was provided by ...  ...

Interactive seismic interpretation with piecewise global energy minimization

Thomas Hollt, Johanna Beyer, Fritz Gschwantner, Philipp Muigg, Helmut Doleisch, Gabor Heinemann, Markus Hadwiger
2011 2011 IEEE Pacific Visualization Symposium  
We introduce a combination of 2D and 3D minimal cost path and minimal cost surface tracing for extracting horizons with very little user input.  ...  By processing the volume based on well positions rather than slice-based, we are able to create a piecewise optimal horizon surface at interactive rates.  ...  However, dead end paths/surface patches, connected to the surface would not be removed by growing.  ...

A Graph-Spectral Approach to Shape-From-Shading

A. Robles-Kelly, E. Hancock
2004 IEEE Transactions on Image Processing  
Modeling the blocks of the weight matrix as distinct surface patches, we use a graph seriation method to find a surface integration path that maximizes the sum of curvature-dependent weights and that can  ...  In this paper, we explore how graph-spectral methods can be used to develop a new shape-from-shading algorithm.  ...  The sites visited by the integration path can be viewed as constituting a single surface patch.  ...

A fast multi-obstacle muscle wrapping method using natural geodesic variations

Andreas Scholz, Michael Sherman, Ian Stavness, Scott Delp, Andrés Kecskeméthy
2015 Multibody system dynamics  
Biologically accurate wrapping surfaces are complex, and a single muscle path may wrap around many obstacles.  ...  The total path is regarded as a concatenation of straight-line segments between local surface geodesics, where each geodesic is naturally parameterized by its starting point, direction, and length.  ...  nonlinear energy-minimization approach; (ii) a geometry benchmark that contains multiple complex wrapping obstacles including a surface patch fitted to a human ribcage; and (iii) a computational-speed  ...

Shape reconstruction from gradient data

Svenja Ettl, Jürgen Kaminski, Markus C. Knauer, Gerd Häusler
2008 Applied Optics  
For many applications, however, it is necessary to acquire the shape, which must be calculated from the slopes by numerical integration.  ...  We present a novel method for reconstructing the shape of an object from measured gradient data. A certain class of optical sensors does not measure the shape of an object, but its local slope.  ...  We choose the size of the patches as big as possible, provided that a single patch can still be handled efficiently.  ...

Surface Reconstruction by Propagating 3D Stereo Data in Multiple 2D Images [chapter]

Gang Zeng, Sylvain Paris, Long Quan, Maxime Lhuillier
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The idea is therefore to first construct small surface patches from stereo points, then to progressively propagate only reliable patches in their neighborhood from images into the whole surface using a  ...  The problem reduces to searching for an optimal local surface patch going through a given set of stereo points from images.  ...  Acknowledgements This project is supported by the Hong Kong RGC grant HKUST 6188/02E.

Feature-based surface parameterization and texture mapping

Eugene Zhang, Konstantin Mischaikow, Greg Turk
2005 ACM Transactions on Graphics  
In the last stage, we create one or two patches for each feature region based on a covariance matrix of the feature's surface points.  ...  Therefore, we use the Green-Lagrange tensor to measure and to guide the optimization process. Furthermore, we allow the boundary vertices of a patch to be optimized by adding scaffold triangles.  ...  Finally, we wish to thank our anonymous reviewers for their valuable comments and suggestions.  ...

Local Geodesic Parametrization: an Ant's Perspective [chapter]

Lior Shapira, Ariel Shamir
2009 Mathematics and Visualization  
Most works focus on parameterizing complete surfaces, attempting to satisfy various constraints on distances and angles and produce a 2D map with minimal errors.  ...  We try and acquire the perspective of an ant living on the surface. The point on which it stands is the center of its world, and importance diminishes from there onward.  ...  This is done until convergence to a single point.  ...
