We present a method for post-processing point clouds’ geometric information by applying a previously proposed fractional super-resolution technique to clouds compressed and decoded with MPEG’s G-PCC codec. In some sense, this is a
continuation of that previous work, which requires only a downscaled point cloud and a scaling factor, both of which are provided by the G-PCC codec. For non-solid point clouds, an a priori down-scaling is required for improved efficiency. The method is compared to the GPCC itself, as well as machine-learning-based techniques. Results show a great improvement in quality over GPCC and comparable performance to the latter techniques, with the advantage of not needing any kind of previous training.
