DecimateHawaii

VTKExamples/Cxx/VisualizationAlgorithms/DecimateHawaii


Description

This examples shows reduction on the order of 90 percent for a 10:1 compression ratio. the wireframe image are shown to accentuate the density of the polygonal meshes. The left-hand image is the original data; the right-hand image is the decimated mesh.
