Abstract
This paper describes 3D mapping of indoor and outdoor
environment using a mobile range scanner. In the raw range
data preprocessing stage, we propose to use area decreas-
ing flow for surface mesh smoothing instead of the mean
curvature flow. Although the proposed area decreasing flow
approach is mathematically equivalent to the mean curva-
ture flow, it can avoid the difficulty in curvature estimation
and provide an optimal flowing step size. Geometric details
are preserved by adaptive smoothing on crease edges. In the
multi-view 3D reconstruction stage, we combine the space
carving with Hilton's implicit surface-based method to gen-
erate watertight 3D models from limited number of scans.
