System and method for free-boundary surface extraction

Marei Saeed Mohammed Algarni (Inventor), Ganesh Sundaramoorthi (Inventor)

Research output: Patent


A method of extracting surfaces in three-dimensional data includes receiving as inputs three-dimensional data and a seed point p located on a surface to be extracted. The method further includes propagating a front outwardly from the seed point p and extracting a plurality of ridge curves based on the propagated front. A surface boundary is detected based on a comparison of distances between adjacent ridge curves and the desired surface is extracted based on the detected surface boundary.
