Abstract:

Polygonal simplification, a.k.a. level of detail, is an important tool for anyone doing interactive rendering, but how is a developer to choose among the dozens of published algorithms? This article surveys the field from a developer's point of view, attempting to identify the issues in picking an algorithm, relate the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches, and describe a number of published algorithms as examples.
