We present an efficient scalable streaming technique for mapping highly detailed color information on extremely dense point clouds. Our method does not require meshing or extensive processing of the input model, works on a coarsely spatially-reordered point stream and can adaptively refine point cloud geometry on the basis of image content. Seamless multi-band image blending is obtained by using GPU accelerated screen-space operators, which solve point set visibility, compute a per-pixel view… CONTINUE READING
