Abstract
Studies for representing three-dimensional (3-D) objects are an important subject in different fields, such as computer vision, data compression, creation of virtual scenes, and others. Any surface can be seen as a 3-D object and studied as such. 3-D voxel-based surfaces are described using a 3-D tree structure known as an enclosing tree. A modified version of this structure is used to describe the surface. In order to describe the surfaces, we used the enclosing trees that are represented via the orthogonal direction change chain code. The representation obtained is compared with the original to verify if proper data compression is achieved.
