Metro: Measuring Error on Simplified Surfaces

  title={Metro: Measuring Error on Simplified Surfaces},
  author={Paolo Cignoni and Claudio Rocchini and Roberto Scopigno},
  journal={Comput. Graph. Forum},
This paper presents a new tool, Metro, designed t o c ompensate for a deeciency in many simpliication methods proposed in literature. Metro allows one to compare the diierence b etween a pair of surfaces e.g. a triangulated mesh and its simpliied r epresentation by adopting a surface sampling approach. It has been designed as a highly general tool, and it does no assuption on the particular approach used to build the simpliied r epresentation. It returns both numerical results meshes areas and… CONTINUE READING
