A visual guide to help choose data representations among 3D point clouds, meshes, parametric models, depth-maps, RGB-D, multi-view images, voxels…
The 3D datasets in our computerized ecosystem — of which an increasing number comes directly from reality capture devices — are found in different forms that vary in both the structure and the properties. Interestingly, they can be somehow mapped with success to point clouds thanks to its canonical nature. This article gives you the main 3D data representations modes to choose from when bindings point clouds to your application.
