Benchmarks, Performance Evaluation and Contests for 3D Shape Retrieval



Afzal A. Godil, Zhouhui Lian, Helin Dutagaci


Benchmarking of 3D Shape retrieval allows developers and researchers to compare the strengths of different algorithms on a standard dataset. Here we discuss the different steps involved in developing a benchmark and some of the issues involved. We then discuss some of the current 3D shape retrieval benchmarks efforts by others and by our group. Then we review the different performance evaluation measures that are developed and used by researchers in the community. After that we give an overview of the 3D shape retrieval contests (SHREC) contests run under the EuroGraphics Workshop on 3D Object Retrieval and give details of contests that we had run under SHREC 2010. Finally we will present some of the results based on the different SHREC contests.
