# Conformal self-organizing map for a genus-zero manifold

@article{Liou2005ConformalSM, title={Conformal self-organizing map for a genus-zero manifold}, author={C. Liou and Yen-Ting Kuo}, journal={The Visual Computer}, year={2005}, volume={21}, pages={340-353} }

This paper presents the implementation of a surface mesh on a genus-zero manifold with 3D scattered data of sculpture surfaces using the conformal self-organizing map (CSM). It starts with a regular mesh on a sphere and gradually shapes the regular mesh to match its object’s surface by using the CSM. It can drape a uniform mesh on an object with a high degree of conformality. It accomplishes the surface reconstruction and also defines a conformal mapping from a sphere to the object’s manifold.
