Summary and future work

After giving a short survey on recent multiresolution methods, the progressive meshes representation was presented. This is a promising multiresolution approach that can be extended to support view-dependent refinement and real-time applications. Future work includes extending the refinement criteria to account for surface shading as it was already done in [14,10].

The implementation described in section 4 is the current state of my diploma thesis. I hope that the reader is now curious about future results in this young and dynamic field of research and might even be interested in the final version of this work. The diploma thesis is expected to be finished in 1999 and will reveal many details which are beyond the scope of this article.
