CS598b Assignment 3: 3D Analysis
Due May 9, 2000

The objective of this assignment is to develop algorithms for analysis of 3D shapes using high-level 3D representations.
You should:
  1. Choose an analysis task (verification, recognition, similarity-based retrieval, classification, clustering, etc.),
  2. Choose a 3D object representation (e.g., surfaces, voxels, skeletons, CSG, etc.), and
  3. Implement a program that automatically performs the analysis task using the 3D object representation.
You can be as ambitious as you want.  Simple projects will involve implementing methods from the literature, medium-level projects may involve developing new similarity metrics for high-level 3D representations, and hard projects may involve integrating reconstruction and analysis methods.

A one-page project proposal is due on Tuesday, April 11.  The final report will be due at midnight on May 9.  Please email me a written description, concisely describing the goal of your project, your approach, issues encountered, and evaluation of your results.  Include pictures and references.  Also, we'll discuss the progress of your projects in class on Tuesday 4/25 and Thursday 4/27, during which each student will make a 15-20 minute presentation describing his/her project.
