OP5 - A 3D-Fourier-Descriptor Approach to Compress and Classify 3D Imaging Data

Robert Schmitt & Peter Fritz
One major problem of optical 3D measurement methods like structured light projection or computer tomography is the size of the resulting scans. For example, a medium-sized CT data set with a resolution of 1000 × 1000 × 1000 voxels and a standard bit depth per voxel of 16 Bit takes 1.9 GB. Hence, much effort has to be spent to carry out the measurement, to archive the data, or to transmit the scans to other...
