An appearance­based framework for 3D hand shape classification and simultane­
ous camera viewpoint estimation is presented. Given an input image of a segmented
hand, the most similar matches from a large database of synthetic hand images are re­
trieved. The ground truth labels of those matches, containing hand shape and camera
viewpoint information, are returned by the system as estimates for the input image.
Database retrieval is done hierarchically, by first quickly rejecting the vast majority of
all database views, and then ranking the remaining candidates in order of similarity
to the input. Four different similarity measures are employed, based on edge location,
