Abstract

A polyhedral object in three-dimensional space is often well represented by a set of points and line segments that act as its features. By a nice perspective projection of an object we mean a projection that gives an image in which the features of the object, relevant for some task, are visible without ambiguity. In this paper we consider the problem of computing a variety of nice perspective projections of three-dimensional objects such as simple polygonal chains, wire-frame drawings of graphs, and geometric rooted trees. These problems arise in areas such as computer vision, computer graphics, graph drawing, knot theory, and computational geometry.
