Spatial correlation functions (CFs) are prominent descriptors of any structure. In this letter, we show for the first time how proper weighting of CFs in an objective function can lead to significant improvements in reconstruction accuracy and in the likelihood of convergence. We develop a simple weighting scheme and display its effectiveness on two- and three-dimensional structures utilizing up to 27 CFs in one set. Proper weighting of the objective functions led to completely accurate reconstructions not achievable by conventional unweighted approaches. The proposed approach combining numerous CFs can potentially characterize and reconstruct structures of any complexity.
