Head Model Acquisition from Silhouettes
This paper describes a practical system developed for generating 3D models of human heads from silhouettes alone. The input to the system is an image sequence acquired from circula...

A Skeletal Measure of 2D Shape Similarity
This paper presents a geometric measure that can be used to gauge the similarity of 2D shapes by comparing their skeletons. The measure is defined to be the rate of change of bou...

Color and Shape Index for Region-Based Image Retrieval
Abstract. Most CBIR systems use low-level visual features for representation and retrieval of images. Generally such methods suffer from the problems of high-dimensionality leadin...

Curve Skeletonization by Junction Detection in Surface Skeletons
We present an algorithm that, starting from the surface skeleton of a 3D solid object, computes the curve skeleton. The algorithm is based on the detection of curves and junctions ...

Volume and Surface Area Distributions of Cracks in Concrete
Volumetric images of small mortar samples under load are acquired by X-ray microtomography. The images are binarized at many different threshold values, and over a million connecte...

The Shock Scaffold for Representing 3D Shape
The usefulness of the 3D Medial Axis (MA) is dependent on both the availability of accurate and stable methods for computing individual MA points and on schemes for deriving the l...

Judging Whether Multiple Silhouettes Can Come from the Same Object
We consider the problem of recognizing an object from its silhouette. We focus on the case in which the camera translates, and rotates about a known axis parallel to the image, suc...
