Projects and Project Report Guidelines
Each project team will maintain a web page describing their project,
and updating it as the project progresses. Eventually, it will serve
as the final project report for the team. Things to include in your
web page are:
Title of Project
Team Members with email
Initial Project Proposal - Describe in as much detail as possible what you will
do. Some things to include are:
Actual object(s) to be scanned/imaged
3-D modeling method for your data
2-D Texture mapping method for your model
What will the model be used for? Static model, animated model,
annotated/inserted into other virtual/real environments? Explain.
If you are following a paper of someone else's method, what will be
different in your project?
Timeline and project milestones. Typical things to include are:
Data Acquired Date
3-D Modeling Completed
Texture enhancing completed
Animation, insertion, annotation etc. completed
Breakdown of project members tasks and responsibilites. If you have
more than 3-4 people, your project should accomplish more.
References - articles you will read that are related to your project,
web clickable if possible. You should be prepared to report on these
papers to the rest of the class as part of your assignment.
List of clickable Related Websites of similar work.
Any supporting information you want to include - images, ideas, etc.
Think of this a blog, writing down a chronology of your project with dates.
The project presentations will be on Thursday, April 29 in class. Each team will have approximately 30 minutes to present their
project work to the class. All team members should participate in this
presentation. Any project team that wants to demo their project to me
in the lab as well needs to make an appointment with me to do this.
Final Project Report
Each project team needs to submit a final project report. This will be
part of the web site as well.
One way to view this report is that someone else could take the report
and use it to recreate your project. Hence, it must be complete.
It should include the following information:
detailed project technical discussion. This should desribe in
detail all relevant technical areas of the project, with textual
descriptions of algorithms, methods, and approaches used. Make sure
you discuss all the steps taken in completing your project. If you
modeled your project after someone else's paper, discuss problems
encountered implementing their methods.
results section showing results of the project. This should
include any imagery, 3-D models, animations, etc. with appropriate
Analysis: Detailed discussion of how each method worked, what
didn't work, performance issues, problems that couldn't be solved,
future work that could be done to improve the project, limitations
of the method implemented etc.
links to any code used in the project written by your team.
a link to a .tar or .zip archive that includes the entire set of
web files, including code, images, etc. This will allow me to keep
a copy of your project after your own directories expire.
The web based reports discussed above will be due on May 6,
4PM. Each team will send mail to me when they have finished their
report, along with a link to any .tar/.zip files above.
