This paper introduces a new probabilistic framework for Space Carving. In this framework each voxel is assigned a probability, which is computed by comparing the likelihoods for the voxel existing and not existing.

This new framework avoids many of the difficulties associated with the original Space Carving algorithm. Specifically, it does not need a global threshold parameter, and it guarantees that no holes will be carved in the model. This paper also proposes that a voxel-based thick texture is a realistic and efficient representation for scenes which contain dominant planes. The algorithm is tested using both real and synthetic data, and both qualitative and quantitative results are presented.

If you have difficulty viewing files that end '.gz', which are gzip compressed, then you may be able to find tools to uncompress them at the gzip web site.

If you have difficulty viewing files that are in PostScript, (ending '.ps' or '.ps.gz'), then you may be able to find tools to view them at the gsview web site.

We have attempted to provide automatically generated PDF copies of documents for which only PostScript versions have previously been available. These are clearly marked in the database - due to the nature of the automatic conversion process, they are likely to be badly aliased when viewed at default resolution on screen by acroread.
