THE METHOD OF SPLATTING THE FILTER-BASED WEIGHTED AVERAGE
Keywords:splatting, rendering, texture, antialiasing
Modern laser and optical scanners require scene rendering techniques that process millions of points with high-resolution textures. This paper describes a method for rendering and filtering textures based on the weighted average filter (EWA) and splatting
