Metrics and Visualization Tools for Surface Mesh Comparison
Validation and verification of visualization products
is an integral part of the visualization process.
This paper focuses on measurements and techniques for
comparing the quality of meshes produced by
(a) different hierarchical multiresolution (HMR) methods and
(b) different levels of detail for a given multiresolution method.
The main contribution from such techniques is a better understanding
of the quality of competing HMR approaches, and the location and degree
of degradation as one goes to a coarser or denser representation.
We report on a number of statistics for comparing different
surface meshes and how these may be visually presented in a
number of insightful ways.
