Geometric models created from range sensors are usually incomplete. Considerable effort has been made to fix this problem, ranging from manual repairing to geometric interpolation. We propose using multi-view stereo to complete such models. Our approach is practical and convenient because when scanning and object or environment one usually takes photographs to texture the resulting model. By using the incomplete scan data as a boundary condition, we use a variational multi-view approach to estimate the missing data.
