# A Heuristic Method for Region Reconstruction from Noisy Samples

@article{Brazil2009AHM, title={A Heuristic Method for Region Reconstruction from Noisy Samples}, author={Emilio Vital Brazil and Luiz Henrique de Figueiredo}, journal={Int. J. Shape Model.}, year={2009}, volume={15}, pages={1-17} }

We describe a heuristic method for reconstructing a region in the plane from a noisy sample of points. The method uses radial basis functions with Gaussian kernels to compute a fuzzy membership function which provides an implicit approximation for the region. We also evaluate our reconstruction method for several sampling conditions.

It is shown that the RBF representation has advantages for mesh simplification and remeshing applications, and a greedy algorithm in the fitting process reduces the number of RBF centers required to represent a surface and results in significant compression and further computational advantages.

A new shape representation is presented, the multi-level partition of unity implicit surface, that allows us to construct surface models from very large sets of points, and can accurately represent sharp features such as edges and corners by selecting appropriate shape functions.

A generalization of the convex hull of a finite set of points in the plane leads to a family of straight-line graphs, "alpha -shapes," which seem to capture the intuitive notions of "fine shape" and "crude shape" of point sets.
