Remote Walk-Through.

The K2T company has demonstrated, in conjunction with the Robotics Institute at CMU, the ability to build remote walk-throughs [8]. They scanned an abandoned research facility, collected color images, and also videotaped a helicopter fly-over of the site to reconstruct the surrounding topology. The result is a model that can be viewed from arbitrary locations.
