Three-Dimensional Surface Relief Completion Via Nonparametric Techniques

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Common 3D acquisition techniques, such as laser scanning and stereo capture, are realistically only 2.5D in nature. Here we consider the automated completion of hidden or missing portions in 3D scenes originally acquired from 2.5D (or 3D) capture. We propose an approach based on the non-parametric propagation of available scene knowledge from the known (visible) scene areas to these unknown (invisible) 3D regions in conjunction with an initial underlying geometric surface completion.
