WorldBrush: Interactive Example-Based Synthesis of Procedural Virtual Worlds

A painting metaphor for interactive synthesis and editing of virtual worlds, based on regions' statistical learning and synthesis, for distributions of elements and structured objects. Brushes and other traditional editing tools are adapted to this interactive scheme of assisted consistent creation, thus achieving interactive local inverse procedural modeling.

Advanced Procedural Modeling of Architecture

A novel grammar language, called CGA++, for the procedural modeling of architecture with significantly increased expressiveness, offering a generic and integrated solution for many advanced procedural modeling problems. The language introduces full first-class support for shapes and powerful facilities for multi-shape coordination.

Learning Shape Placements by Example

A method for learning and propagating shape placements in 2D polygonal scenes from a few examples, which can be used to populate large scenes with thousands of objects with relatively little user interaction.
