Consistent spherical parameterization
Computer Graphics and Geometric Modeling (CGGM) 2005 Workshop.
Low-distortion mapping between genus-zero shapes.
Many applications benefit from surface parameterization, including texture mapping, morphing, remeshing,
compression, object recognition, and detail transfer, because processing is easier on the domain than on
the original irregular mesh. We present a method for simultaneously parameterizing several genus-0 meshes
possibly with boundaries onto a common spherical domain, while ensuring that corresponding user-highlighted
features on each of the meshes map to the same domain locations. We obtain visually smooth
parameterizations without any cuts, and the constraints enable us to directly associate semantically
important features such as animal limbs or facial detail. Our method is robust and works well with either
sparse or dense sets of constraints.
