EFFICIENT 3D DATA COMPRESSION THROUGH PARAMETERIZATION OF FREE-FORM SURFACE PATCHES

Marcos Rodrigues, Alan Robinson, A. Osman

Abstract

This paper presents a new method for 3D data compression based on parameterization of surface patches. The technique is applied to data that can be defined as single valued functions; this is the case for 3D patches obtained using standard 3D scanners. The method defines a number of mesh cutting planes and the intersection of planes on the mesh defines a set of sampling points. These points contain an explicit structure that allows us to define parametrically both x and y coordinates. The z values are interpolated using high degree polynomials and results show that compressions over 99% are achieved while preserving the quality of the mesh.
