Abstract : This paper gives an overview over several techniques for detection of features, and in particular sharp features, on point-sampled geometry. In addition, a new technique using the Gauss map is shown. Given an unstructured point cloud, this method computes a Gauss map clustering on local neighborhoods in order to discard all points that are unlikely to belong to a sharp feature. A single parameter is used in this stage to control the sensitivity of the feature detection.
