Abstract
An appearance-based framework for 3D hand shape
classification and simultaneous camera viewpoint estima-
tion is presented. Given an input image of a segmented
hand, the most similar matches from a large database of
synthetic hand images are retrieved. The ground truth la-
bels of those matches, containing hand shape and camera
viewpoint information, are returned by the system as esti-
mates for the input image. Database retrieval is done hi-
erarchically, by first quickly rejecting the vast majority of
all database views, and then ranking the remaining can-
