'Metro' evaluates the difference between two triangular meshes. It adopts an approximated approach based on surface sampling and point-to-surface distance computation, and has been widely used in the surface simplification research community (more than 140 citations according to google). It implements three different surface sampling methods:
* Montecarlo sampling (pick k random samples in the interior of each face) * Subdivision sampling (recursively subdivide each face along the longest edge and choose the sample in the center of each cell) * Similar Triangles sampling (subdivide each face F in k polygons similar to F and sample the face in correspondence with the vertices of these polygons, internal to F)
