Abstract

Level of detail generation is important for managing geometric complexity of three-dimensional objects and virtual worlds. However, most algorithms that compute levels of detail do not deal with the special requirements of input data in VRML format. We report an algorithm called LODESTAR, based on octree quantization that robustly computes simplifications for objects in VRML.
