Here the reconstruction of the ancient theater of Sagalassos is shown. Sagalassos is an archaeological site in Turkey. More results obtained at this site are presented in Sections 9.3 and 9.4. The reconstruction is based on a sequence filmed by a cameraman from the BRTN (Belgische Radio en Televisie van de Nederlandstalige gemeenschap) in 1990. The sequence was filmed to illustrate a TV program about Sagalassos. Because of the motion only fields -and not frames- could be used. The resolution of the images we could use was thus restricted to . The sequence consisted of about hundred images, every tenth image is shown in Figure 9.10. We recorded approximately 3 images per second.
In Figure 9.11 the reconstruction of interest points and cameras is given. This shows that the approach can deal with long image sequences.
Dense depth maps were generated from this sequence and a dense textured 3D surface model was constructed from this. Some views of this model are given in Figure 9.12.
