Abstract: We present a novel procedure that achieves segmentation of an arbitrary surface relying on the maximum a-posteriori estimation of its reflectance parameters. The number of surfaces segments is computed by the algorithm without user intervention. We employ Markov Chain Monte Carlo algorithms to compute the probability distributions associated with the model parameters of a Blinn reflectance model based on the input images. The fact that parameters are treated as probability distributions enables us to directly draw additional information about the certainty of the estimation from the results of both parameters and segmentation borders. Reversible jump MCMC allows us to include an unspecified number of change points in the computation, such that the algorithm explores model and parameter space at the same time and derives a segmentation of the surface from the input data. To accomplish this, we extend the existing concept of change points to two dimensions introducing a number of necess ary new regulations and properties. The performance of the segmentation and reflectance estimation is evaluated on a synthetic and a real-world dataset. (More)
