Abstract

In this paper, we present a method for partial matching and retrieval of 3D objects based on range image queries. The proposed methodology addresses the retrieval of complete 3D objects using range image queries that represent partial views. The core methodology relies upon Bag-of-Visual-Words modelling and enhanced Dense SIFT descriptor computed on panoramic views and range image queries. Performance evaluation builds upon standard measures and a challenging 3D pottery dataset originating from the Hampson Archaeological Museum collection.
