DOI: 10.1145/353981.353982
I'm very pleased to have the opportunity to take over as editor-in-chief after Holly Rushmeier's strong leadership of the past three years. ACM has made a big effort to get TOG back on schedule after the delays caused by changing to a new...

Texture potential MIP mapping, a new high-quality texture antialiasing algorithm

Pages: 164-184
DOI: 10.1145/353981.353991
A refined version of the texture potential mapping algorithm is introduced in which a one-dimensional MIP map is incorporated. This has the effect of controlling the maximum number of texture samples required. The new technique is compared to...

Grouping and parameterizing irregularly spaced points for curve fitting
A. Ardeshir Goshtasby
Pages: 185-203
DOI: 10.1145/353981.353992
Given a large set of irregularly spaced points in the plane, an algorithm for partitioning the points into subsets and fitting a parametric curve to each subset is described. The points could be measurements from a physical phenomenon, and the...

Image-driven simplification
Peter Lindstrom, Greg Turk
Pages: 204-241
DOI: 10.1145/353981.353995
We introduce the notion of image-driven simplification, a framework that uses images to decide which portions of a model to simplify. This is a departure from approaches that make polygonal simplification decisions based on...
