Parallel Poisson surface reconstruction
International Symposium on Visual Computing 2009.
Parallelization of Poisson reconstruction using domain decomposition.
In this work we describe a parallel implementation of the Poisson Surface Reconstruction algorithm based on
multigrid domain decomposition. We compare implementations using different models of data-sharing between
processors and show that a parallel implementation with distributed memory provides the best scalability.
Using our method, we are able to parallelize the reconstruction of models from one billion data points on
twelve processors across three machines, providing a ninefold speedup in running time without sacrificing
