ORTHANT NEIGHBORHOOD GRAPHS - A Decentralized Approach for Proximity Queries in Dynamic Point Sets

2007 Proceedings of the Second International Conference on Computer Graphics Theory and Applications   unpublished
Figure 1 : A complex example of an ONG for a point set with ca. 750 points. Abstract: This work presents a novel approach for proximity queries in dynamic point sets, a common problem in computer graphics. We introduce the notion of Orthant Neighborhood Graphs, yielding a simple, decentralized spatial data structure based on weak spanners. We present efficient algorithms for dynamic insertions, deletions and movements of points, as well as range searching and other proximity queries. All our
