Abstract

In this paper we present a novel generic method for the fast and accurate computation of geometric features at multiple scales. The presented method works on arbitrarily complex models and operates in the parametric space. The majority of the existing methods compute local features directly on the geometric representation of the model. Our approach decouples the computational complexity from the underlying geometry and in contrast to other parametric space methods, it is not restricted to a specific feature or parameterization of the surface. We show that the method performs accurately and at interactive rates, even for large feature areas of support, rendering the method suitable for animated shapes.
