The course outlines various aspects of three dimensional geometric modeling and reconstruction approaches. The developments are changing the way we think about 3D data. Today, the primary challenge of 3D modeling is how to synthesize computer-based descriptions for objects. Research in retrieval, recognition, classification of 3D models will follow the same trends as can already be observed for text, images, audio, video, and other media.
The objective of this course is to investigate methods for analysis of 3D data. This objective is motivated by recent developments which have combined to accelerate the proliferation of 3D models.
Course Learning Outcomes
• To be able to synthesize computer-based descriptions for objects.
• Investigate various representations of shape.
• How different representations can be used for analysis and comparison of 3D objects.
• Potential applications for computer-aided design, medicine, electronic commerce, entertainment, and education.
• Get an overview of 3D modeling and reconstruction and to improve the knowledge on surface modeling in graphics.
• Explore the behavior and characteristics of the most popular modeling representations and their uses in design and engineering applications.
• Become familiar with standard ways of creating/reconstructing various shapes and to understand the principles behind the generation of complicated shapes.
