A Benchmark for Best View Selection of 3D Objects



Helin Dutagaci, Chun Pan (Benny) Cheung, Afzal A. Godil


The best view selection corresponds to the task of automatically selecting the most representative view of a 3D model. In this paper, we describe a benchmark for evaluation of best view selection algorithms. The benchmark consists of the preferred views of 68 3D models provided by 26 human subjects. The data was collected using a web-based subjective experiment where the users were asked to select the most informative view of a 3D model. We provided a quantitative evaluation measure based on this ground truth data, and compared the performances of seven best view selection algorithms.
