—In this paper, a novel view-based approach for 3D object retrieval is introduced. A set of 2D images (multi-views) are automatically generated from a 3D object, by taking views from uniformly distributed viewpoints. For each image, a set of 2D rotation-invariant shape descriptors is extracted. The global shape similarity between two 3D models is achieved(More)
—This paper proposes a novel framework for 3-D object retrieval, taking into account most of the factors that may affect the retrieval performance. Initially, a novel 3-D model alignment method is introduced, which achieves accurate rotation estimation through the combination of two intuitive criteria, plane reflection symmetry and rectilinearity. After the(More)
In this paper, a novel framework for description of rich media content is introduced. Firstly, the concept of 'content objects' is provided. Content objects are rich media presentations, enclosing different types of media, along with real-world information and user-related information. These highly complex presentations require a suitable description scheme(More)
Recommended by Ming Ouhyoung This paper presents a novel methodology for content-based search and retrieval of 3D objects. After proper positioning of the 3D objects using translation and scaling, a set of functionals is applied to the 3D model producing a new domain of concentric spheres. In this new domain, a new set of functionals is applied, resulting(More)
In this paper, a 3D shape-based approach is presented for the efficient search, retrieval, and classification of protein molecules. The method relies primarily on the geometric 3D structure of the proteins, which is produced from the corresponding PDB files and secondarily on their primary and secondary structure. After proper positioning of the 3D(More)
This paper presents a novel framework for 3D object content-based search and retrieval, appropriate for both partial and global matching applications. The framework is based on a graph representation of a 3D object which is enhanced by local geometric features. The 3D object is decomposed into meaningful parts and an attributed graph is constructed based on(More)
In this paper a novel method for 3D content-based search and retrieval is proposed. Guided by the imperative need for a reliable 3D content based search tool and the very interesting results of research work done in the past on the performance of Krawtchouk moments and Krawtchouk moment invariants in image processing, Weighted 3D Krawtchouk moments are(More)
