Interest Points Guided Mesh Simplification
Based on interest point detection, a feature preserving mesh simplification algorithm is proposed. The Harris operator values of all vertices in the mesh were computed firstly. On the base of Garland’s simplification algorithm, we combine the Harris operator value with quadric error metric and change the order of edge collapsing in the simplification. The experimental results show that the proposed algorithm is effective and feature preserving.
