We survey recent developments in compact representations of 3D mesh data. This includes: Methods to reduce the complexity of meshes by simplification, thereby reducing the number of vertices and faces in the mesh; Methods to resample the geometry in order to optimize the vertex distribution; Methods to compactly represent the connectivity data (the graph structure defined by the edges) of the mesh; Methods to compactly represent the geometry data (the vertex coordinates) of a mesh.
