In many geometry processing applications, the estimation of differential geometric quantities such as curvature or normal vector field is an essential step. Focusing on multigrid convergent estimators, most of them require a user specified parameter to define the scale at which the analysis is performed (size of a convolution kernel, size of local patches for polynomial fitting, etc). In a previous work, we have proposed a new class of estimators on digital shape boundaries based on Integral
