3D depth data has turned out to be a key information source for solving a large number of challenging applications. In the past substantial advances have been demonstrated to process, analyze, and interpret depth data. Through the recent development in consumer depth cameras, in particular the low-cost Kinect, a new era of depth data analysis emerges. Affordable depth cameras are changing the landscape of computer vision and related research fields, with profound impact far beyond the consumer electronics.

The purpose of this special issue is to timely address the challenges in advanced depth acquisition techniques, processing and analyzing depth data, and solving novel and challenging applications. The scope of this special issue includes, but not limited to, the following areas:

  • Depth acquisition techniques
  • Processing of depth data
  • Analysis of depth data
  • Fusion of depth data with other modalities
  • 3D object recognition
  • 3D shape modeling and retrieval
  • 3D biometrics
  • Human action recognition in depth data
  • 3DTV, e.g. Depth-Based Image Rendering
  • Augmented reality / mixed reality
  • Biomedical applications of depth data
  • Other applications of depth data analysis
  • Depth datasets
  • Depth data visualization
