Surface reconstruction has long been targeted at scan data. With the rise of multi-view acquisition, existing surface reconstruction techniques often turn out to be ill adapted to the highly irregular sampling and multilayered aspect of such data. In this paper, a novel surface reconstruction technique is developed to address these new challenges by means of an advancing front guided by a sphere packing methodology. The method is fairly simple and can efficiently triangulate point clouds into high quality meshes. The substantiated experimental results demonstrate the robustness and the generality of the proposed method.
Figure 5: The reconstruction results of BP, PR and YO in [18,21,2] respectively, as well as our methods are evaluated using the method proposed in . The images show the variance weighted depth difference. Red pixels represent errors larger than 30σ. Green pixels represent the missing scan data of the ground truth. The relative errors between 0 and 30σ are displayed using gray scale from 255 to 0.
