PhD Dissertation title: A 3D model retrieval system: shape matching, database and query interface

PhD Advisor: Mack Shelley

Area of PhD research: The main objective of this research is to construct, analyze, and test new techniques for representing 3D-shapes, measuring similarity, and storing and querying polygonal mesh models. We have developed an effective and efficient representation of 3D models with octrees, as well as similarity measurement metrics, and the methods for storing 3D models in a relational database. The efficiency, effectiveness, and satisfaction study of the 3D model query interfaces was also conducted and a set of questionnaires for 3D query interfaces was developed.
