(SIGGRAPH 2004, 2004.)

This course introduces points as a powerful and versatile graphics primitive. Speakers present their latest concepts for the acquisition, representation, modeling, processing, and rendering of point sampled geometry along with applications and research directions. We describe algorithms and discuss current problems and limitations, covering important aspects of point based graphics.
