The software is released as a windows installer. It has been tested on 32bit WindowsXP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 64 Bit. Run the installer and you are ready to go (try the examples for example).
Sumatra (The Surface Manipulation and Transformation Toolkit) is a general tool for viewing and manipulation surfaces and pointclouds. The software is released as a windows installer. It has been tested on 32bit WindowsXP and Windows Vista. Run the installer and you are ready to go.
The above software is released as citeware. For the pure surface reconstruction the following reference is appropriate:
Rasmus R. Paulsen, Jakob Andreas Bærentzen, Rasmus Larsen, Markov Random Field Surface Reconstruction
, IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics, pp. 636-646, July/August, 2010
For the combined alignment and surface reconstruction the following citation should be used:
Rasmus R. Paulsen and Rasmus Larsen. Anatomically Plausible Surface Alignment and Reconstruction
. Proc. Eurographics UK conference on Theory and Practice of Computer Graphics
. pp. 249-254, 2010.
Why no source code?
MRFSurface is based on the Visualization Toolkit (VTK)
(for mesh and volume structures), GEL
(for half-edge operations), VXL/VNL
(for matrix computations and solvers). It is therefore quite complicated to distribute in source form and compile. It is not impossible that a future source-code release will happen.
