Abstract or Description

In our early work, a representation called Harmonic Shape Images for 3D free-form surfaces was proposed and applied to solve the surface matching problem (D. Zhang and M. Hebert, 1999). Extensive experiments using real data are conducted to analyze the performance of Harmonic Shape Images with respect to discriminability, stability and robustness to resolution and occlusion. The results show that Harmonic Shape Images are an appropriate representation for 3D surface comparison. Examples of surface comparison using real data are presented.
