This work offers an overview of the state-of-the-art on the emerging area of 3D object retrieval based on partial queries. This research area is associated with several application domains, including face recognition and digital libraries of cultural heritage objects. The existing partial 3D object retrieval methods can be mainly classified as: i) view-based, ii) partbased, iii) bag of visual words (BoVW)-based, and iv) hybrid methods combining these three main paradigms or methods which cannot be straightforwardly classified. Several methodological aspects are identified, including the use of interest points and the exploitation of 2.5D projections, whereas the available evaluation datasets and campaigns are addressed. A thorough discussion follows, identifying advantages and limitations.
