A multiple description coding (MDC) technique for 3D surface geometry is proposed in this work. The encoder uses a plane-based representation to describe point samples. Then, those plane primitives are classified into two disjoint subsets or two descriptions, each of which provides equal contribution in 3D surface description. The two descriptions are compressed and transmitted over distinct channels. At the decoder, if both channels are available, the descriptions are decoded and merged together to reconstruct a high quality surface. If only one channel is available, we employ a surface interpolation method to fill visual holes and reconstruct a smooth surface. Therefore, the proposed algorithm can provide an acceptable reconstruction even though one channel is totally lost. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed algorithm is a promising scheme for 3D data transmission over noisy channels.
