Geometric Multi-Covering

In this paper we present a general, unified framework to resolve geometric covering problems. The problem is reduced to a set cover search in parametric space. We propose and implement diff erent methods for solving the set cover problem, allowing for flexible trade-off s between solution quality and computation time. Our framework relies on computer graphics techniques and heavily exploits GPU based computations. Results are demonstrated in two specific applications: firstly, multi-visibility/accessibility analysis of 3D scenes that guarantees coverage, possibly redundant, of the target shape(s) by a minimal number of observers. Secondly, illumination design in 3D environments that ensures the satisfaction of local constraints on illuminance levels using a minimal set of lamps.
