Abstract. Two-dimensional (2D) images of an object are commonly used for product presentation in e-commerce, mainly because these images can reveal the object’s color in high quality and are easy to process. However, 2D images provide only limited viewpoints of an object. Three-dimensional (3D) visualization is an alternative technique for product presentation, in which multiple 2D images showing different viewing angles are integrated. The user can orient a 2D image at a given viewing angle via a viewing interface. However, in such a presentation, the user can only view images that were captured beforehand. Further, owing to limited angles recorded, the orientation process is not fluent. In addition, the actual 3D shape and dimensions of an object cannot be obtained using this approach. A 3D model combined with the object’s texture, called 3D color model hereafter, is an alternative approach for product presentation in e-commerce applications. Further, the texture might have the photo inconsistency issue at the junctions. Various techniques can be employed to create a texture map for a 3D color model.
