Special Issue on Geometric Data Processing and Analysis for Advanced Manufacturing

Geometric information, such as three-dimensional (3D) shapes and network topologies, has been increasingly explored in manufacturing research. For example, characterizing geometric information in 3D-printed parts, in-situ or ex-situ, opens opportunities for defect detection, quality improvement, and product customization. However, geometric data mining remains critically challenging. Geometric information is embedded in complex data structures, such as 3D point clouds, graphs, meshes, voxels, high-dimensional images, and tensors, which possess challenges for analysis due to their high-dimensionality, high-volume, unstructured, multimodality characteristics. Additional challenges stem from compromised data quality (e.g., noisy and incomplete data), the need for registration, etc.
