Abstract

This paper proposes an algorithm that solves the shape recovery problem from N arbitrary images. By introducing a polygonal carving technique, the proposed algorithm can reconstruct the image-consistent polygonal shape that is patched by input images. This algorithm eliminates the invalid vertices and polygons from the initial polygonal grid space according to the color variance that represents their image consistency. The carved shape is refined by moving the outlier vertices on the boundary of each image. The final reconstructed shape faithfully accounts for the input images, and its textured appearance reflects the similar color property of the target object.
