Hierarchical simplification of city models to maintain urban legibility.Chang, Remco.
For 3D global visualization systems such as Google Earth, it is important to be able to render city-sized collections of relatively simple building models at fast speeds without losing spatial coherence. Since traditional mesh simplification algorithms are not designed for collections of simple models, we introduce a method of simplification through merging of similar objects. We incorporate the c... read more
