Abstract
Ongoing work towards appearance-based 3D hand pose estimation from a single
image is presented. A large database of synthetic hand views is generated using a 3D
hand model and computer graphics. The views display different hand shapes as seen
from arbitrary viewpoints. Each synthetic view is automatically labeled with param-
eters describing its hand shape and viewing parameters. Given an input image, the
system retrieves the most similar database views, and uses the shape and viewing pa-
rameters of those views as candidate estimates for the parameters of the input image.
Preliminary results are presented, in which appearance-based similarity is defined in
