Variational Surface Interpolation from Sparse Point and Normal Data
Many visual cues for surface reconstruction from known views are sparse in nature, e.g. specularities, surface silhouettes and salient features in an otherwise textureless region....

A Delaunay-based region-growing approach to surface reconstruction from unorganized points
This paper presents a Delaunay-based region-growing (DBRG) surface reconstruction algorithm that holds the advantages of both Delaunay-based and region-growing approaches. The pro...

Optical 3D Surface Reconstruction by a Multi-Period Phase Shift Method
— One problem of classical phase shifting for optical 3D surface reconstruction is the occurrence of ambiguities due to the use of fringe projection. We generally derive a number...
