In my talk I will present some surface reconstruction techniques that handle imperfect data. Such data is common in raw scans and contains large missing parts, ghost outliers and under-sampled regions. We explore reconstruction techniques that focus on such problematic regions. Our general goal is recovering the expected shape in terms of global topology and local geometric detail. I will present different methods that focus on several essential problems of imperfect data reconstruction: In the first part I will present a deformable model method that recovers a watertight surface and well interprets the topology of imperfect scans. Then, I will briefly introduce an interactive topology-aware reconstruction method that uses minimal user input to correctly reconstruct regions where the topology of the model cannot be automatically induced. Finally, with 2-3 slides only I will present some recent and current developments.
