Hierarchical levels of details (HLODs) have proven to be an efficient way to visualize complex environments and models even in an out-of-core system. Large objects are partitioned into a spatial hierarchy and on each node a level of detail is generated for efficient view-dependent rendering. To ensure correct matching between adjacent nodes in the hierarchy care has to be taken to prevent cracks along the cuts. This either leads to severe simplification constraints at the cuts and thus to a… 

Hlod refinement driven by hardware occlusion queries

A novel error metric is introduced, taking visibility information (gathered from HOQs) as an integral part of refining an HLOD model, this being the first approach within this context to the best of the authors' knowledge.

A novel LOD selection and prefetching method for real-time rendering of hard shadows that entirely runs on a single CPU system is presented.

Real-time out-of-core trimmed NURBS rendering and editing

High qualitiy simplification and repair of polygonal models

Of the three mesh simplification approaches presented here, the first one attempts to simplify polygonal models with the highest possible quality, the second, applies the developed technique to out-of-core simplification, and the third, prevents selfintersections of the model surface that can occur duringMesh simplification.

RealReflect - Real-time Visualization of Complex Reflectance Behaviour in Virtual Protoyping

The RealReflect project is an endeavor to increase the realism of VR technology to levels where it can be used for meaningful qualitative reviews of real objects and provides a considerable benefit to those VR users groups who routinely have to make important design decisions about object appearance long before the actual product is first assembled.

A novel solution to the gap problem of deformable trimmed NURBS models with dynamic neighbourhood in real-time by combining the new gap filling algorithm with an on-the-fly tessellation of the individual trimmed NurBS patches.

View-dependent refinement of progressive meshes

This paper defines efficient refinement criteria based on the view frustum, surface orientation, and screen-space geometric error, and develops a real-time algorithm for incrementally refining and coarsening the mesh according to these criteria.

Adaptive Real-Time Level-of-Detail-Based Rendering for Polygonal Models

The approach is more effective than the current level-of-detail-based rendering approaches for most scientific visualization applications, where there are a limited number of highly complex objects that stay relatively close to the viewer.

Efficient adaptive simplification of massive meshes

This paper presents a method for performing adaptive simplification of polygonal meshes that are too large to fit in-core, and exhibits output-sensitive memory requirements and allows fine control over the size of the simplified mesh.

View-dependent simplification of arbitrary polygonal environments

HDS is dynamic, retessellating the scene continually as the user's viewing position shifts, and global, processing the entire database without first decomposing the environment into individual objects.
