SHREC’12 Track: Sketch-Based 3D Shape Retrieval



Bo Li, Afzal A. Godil


Sketch-based 3D shape retrieval has become an important research topic in content-based 3D object retrieval. The aim of this track is to measure and compare the performance of sketch-based 3D shape retrieval methods implemented by different participants over the world. The track is based on a new sketch-based 3D shape benchmark, which contains two types of sketch queries and two versions of target 3D models. In this track, 7 runs have been submitted by 5 groups and their retrieval accuracies were evaluated using 7 commonly used retrieval performance metrics. We hope that the benchmark, its corresponding evaluation code, and the comparative evaluation results of the state-of-the-art sketch-based 3D model retrieval algorithms will contribute to the progress of this research direction for the 3D model retrieval community.
