RBF Surface Reconstruction ● M. Kunerth, P. Omenitsch, G. Sperl 5

RBF Surface Reconstruction cont‘d. Gradients/normals to avoid trivial solutions Center reduction (redundancy) Center positions (noise) Partition of unity Globally supported / compactly supported RBF Hierarchical representations M. Kunerth, P. Omenitsch, G. Sperl 6

Hierarchical Floating RBFs Avoid trivial solution by fitting gradients to normal vectors Assume a small number of centers Center positions viewed as own optimization problem Radial function: inverse quadratic function M. Kunerth, P. Omenitsch, G. Sperl 7

Hierarchical Floating RBFs cont‘d. Floating centers: iterative process of refining initial guess of centers Partition of unity Octree with multiple levels approximating residual errors M. Kunerth, P. Omenitsch, G. Sperl 8

Least-Squares Hermite RBF Fit gradients to normals Subset of points used as centers Radial function: triharmonic function M. Kunerth, P. Omenitsch, G. Sperl 9

Least-Squares Hermite RBF cont‘d. Adaptive greedy sampling of centers Choose random first center Choose next center maximizing function residual and gradient difference to nearest already chosen center using the previous set‘s fitted function Partition of unity Overlapping boxes M. Kunerth, P. Omenitsch, G. Sperl 10

Least-Squares Hermite RBF cont‘d. Pros: Well distributed centers Preserve local features Accurate with few centers Cons: Slow / high computational cost M. Kunerth, P. Omenitsch, G. Sperl 11

Voronoi-based Reconstruction M. Kunerth, P. Omenitsch, G. Sperl 12

Adaptive Partion of Unity M. Kunerth, P. Omenitsch, G. Sperl 13

Conclusion RBF surface reconstruction methods Main differences: Which centers should be used? How to optimize existing centers? different distance functions Smoothing: less noise vs. more detail Tradeoff: speed vs. quality M. Kunerth, P. Omenitsch, G. Sperl 14
