Piecewise Linear Simplifications of Geometries: Variational Shape Approximation of Point Set Surfaces
In this talk, we present a translation of the complete pipeline for variational shape approximation (VSA) to the setting of point sets. First, we consider an explicit example for the theoretically known non-convergence of the currently available VSA approaches. The example motivates us to introduce an alternate version of VSA based on a switch operation for which we prove convergence. Second, we discuss how two further operations – split and merge – can be included in a fully automatic pipeline that is in turn independent of the placement and number of initial seeds. Third and finally, we present two approaches how to obtain a simplified mesh from the output of the VSA procedure.
