Spherical Object Reconstruction Using Simplex Meshes from Sparse Data
A new method for spherical object reconstruction based on deformation of star-shaped simplex meshes has been developed in our laboratory and published recently. The method can handle volumetric as well as three-dimensional range data and is easy to use and relatively fast. The method, however, can yield wrong results for sparse data. The goal of this paper is to describe a modification of the method that is suitable also for sparse data. The performance of the proposed modification is demonstrated on real biomedical data.
