Vectorization in Analyzing 2D/3D Data

Abstract Vectorization is an important process in the fields of graphics and image processing. In computer-aided design (CAD), drawings are scanned, vectorized and written as CAD files in a process called paper-to-CAD conversion or drawing conversion. In geographic information systems (GIS), satellite or aerial images are vectorized to create maps. In graphic design and photography, raster graphics can be vectorized for easier usage and resizing. Vector arts are popular as online contents. Vectorization takes raster images, point clouds, or a series of scattered data samples in space, outputs graphic elements of various types including points, lines, curves, polygons, parametric curves and surface patches. The vectorized representations consist of a... (more)
