ABSTRACT: A least-squares mesh is a surface representation consisting of a small set of anchor points and the differential and topological properties of the surface. In this paper, we present a novel method to identify motion-sensitive anchor points for least-squares meshes from a set of examples. We present a new method, called clustered teleconnection analysis, to identify the maximally excited points in a subset of basis vectors deduced using principal component analysis. We demonstrate by means of examples that our approach has a smaller reconstruction error and equivalent performance to the current best approaches.
