2006 Symposium on Rendering  
We present Ardeco, a new algorithm for image abstraction and conversion from bitmap images into vector graphics. Given a bitmap image, our algorithm automatically computes the set of vector primitives and gradients that best approximates the image. In addition, more details can be generated in user-selected important regions, defined from eye-tracking data or from an importance map painted by the user. Our algorithm is based on a new two-level variational parametric segmentation algorithm,
