Towards a Standardized Spectral Analysis of Point Sets with Applications in Graphics

T. Schlömer, O. Deussen

Abstract

We investigate common pitfalls in the spectral analysis of point sets based on amplitude/power spectrum and radial statistics. We demonstrate the sensitivity of these measurements to the type of Fourier transform and formulate recommendations for crucial analysis and formatting parameters. Following these guidelines elevates comparability between different point generation methods with respect to their spectral characteristics.
