Betti numbers can be used as a means for feature detection to aid in the exploration of complex large-scale data sets. We present a fast algorithm for the calculation of Betti numbers for triangulated isosurfaces, along with examples of their use. Once an isosurface is extracted from a data set, calculating Betti numbers only requires time and space(More)
We present a new algorithm for terrain modeling based on Voronoi diagrams and Sibson’s interpolant. Starting with a set of scattered data sites in the plane with associated function values defining a height field, our algorithm constructs a top-down hierarchy of smooth approximations. We use the convex hull of given sites as domain for our hierarchical(More)
