Automatic computation of best views of objects is very useful. For example, they can be used as the starting point of a scene exploration, or to enrich galleries of objects available through Internet by adding an image a model that may help to decide if it is worth downloading. To select the most interesting viewpoint of an object, we use the so-called viewpoint entropy. The best view is the one which gives the most information of the object being inspected. In this paper we present an adaptive
