Perceptually guided simplification of lit, textured meshes
We present a new algorithm for best-effort simplification of polygonal meshes based on principles of visual perception. Building on previous work, we use a simple model of low-lev...

Large haptic topographic maps: marsview and the proxy graph algorithm
In this paper we develop an interactive 3D browser for large topographic maps using a visual display augmented by a haptic, or force feedback, display. The extreme size of our dat...
