Object Centered Stereo: Displacement Map Estimation Using Texture and Shading

Neil Birkbeck, Dana Cobzas, Martin Jagersand
2006 Third International Symposium on 3D Data Processing, Visualization, and Transmission (3DPVT'06)  
We consider the problem of recovering 3D surface displacements using both shading and multi-view stereo cues.  ...  Although displacement mapping requires a base surface, this base mesh is easily obtained using traditional computer vision techniques (e.g., shape-from-silhouette or structure-from-motion).  ...  For our case, as the cost function is based on shading and uses the surface normals, we chose a continuous representation where the normals are implied by the surface.  ...

Crusta: A new virtual globe for real-time visualization of sub-meter digital topography at planetary scales

Tony Bernardin, Eric Cowgill, Oliver Kreylos, Christopher Bowles, Peter Gold, Bernd Hamann, Louise Kellogg
2011 Computers & Geosciences  
We designed Crusta to be dynamic with the shading of the terrain surface computed on-the-fly when a user manipulates his point-of-view.  ...  This polyhedron defines 30 "base patches," each being a four-sided region that can be subdivided to an arbitrarily fine grid on the surface of the globe to accommodate input data of arbitrary resolution  ...  Keeping with the objective of flexibility and interactive performance of the representation, we chose a simpler approach based on the recursive subdivision of base patches.  ...

Wavelet-based Light Reconstruction from a Single Image

Cameron Upright, Dana Cobzas, Martin Jagersand
2007 Fourth Canadian Conference on Computer and Robot Vision (CRV '07)  
In this paper we propose a wavelet-based light representation. This representation is used for recovering illumination and reflectance of a scene with known geometry from a single calibrated image.  ...  In addition to illumination estimation our algorithm also estimates a Phong surface reflection. Experiments with synthetic and real scenes demonstrate the effectiveness of our method.  ...  We propose a wavelet-based light representation and an image-based illumination recovery algorithm suitable for scenes with complex light and reflectance.  ...

B-rep SE: Simplicially Enhanced Boundary Representation [article]

M. Freytag, V. Shapiro
2004 Solid Modeling  
Boundary representation (B-rep) is a popular representation scheme for mechanical objects due to its ability to accurately represent piecewise smooth surfaces bounding solids.  ...  However, non-trivial topology and geometry of the surface patches hinder point generation, classification, searching, and other algorithms.  ...  On the right is another flat-shaded mesh of the same geometry adaptively subdivided based on geometric error.  ...
