We present a novel approach for estimating mesh saliency. Our method is fast, flexible, and easy to implement. By applying the well-known concept of Shannon entropy to 3D mesh data, we obtain an efficient method to determine mesh saliency. Comparing our method to the most recent, state-of-the-art approach, we show that results of at least similar quality can be achieved within a fraction of the original computation time. We present saliency-guided mesh simplification as a possible application.
