Automatic 3D Modeling with a Hand-Held Camera Images

3DPVT'04 and ISPRS'04 tutorial

Instructor: Marc Pollefeys


3D Model of Medusa Head

How 3D models can be obtained from images acquired with a hand-held camera. The approach is based on advanced automatic techniques that avoid camera calibration and a priori scene knowledge, which gradually retrieve more and more information about the images, the cameras, and the scene.

Topics covered: 3-D Modelling, feature tracking/matching, structure and motion, recovery, uncalibrated reconstruction, self-calibration, dense stereo, matching image-based modelling, compute vision, image and video processing.
