Adaptively Sampled Distance Fields (ADFs) are volumetric shape representations that support a broad range of applications in the areas of computer graphics, computer vision and physics. ADFs are especially beneficial for representing shapes with features at very diverse scales. In this paper, we propose a strategy to represent and reconstruct ADFs on modern graphics hardware (GPUs). We employ a 3D hashing scheme to store the underlying data structure and try to balance the tradeoff between… CONTINUE READING
