From Wide-baseline Point and Line Correspondences to 3D.
2009. XVI, 186 pages. EUR 64,00. ISBN-10: 3-86628-292-3
This book discusses the problem of point and line segment
correspondences between two images taken under wide-baseline
conditions for the particular application of automatic 3D reconstruction.
First, we present the well-known SURF (Speeded Up Robust Features) algorithm and show its performance compared to other state-of-the-art detection/descriptor scheme on a benchmark dataset.
Second, we introduce a wide-baseline line segment matching algorithm. It shows how the position of a line segment with respect to the others is used to filter mismatches and to increase the number of correct matches in an iterative manner.
The third and last part of this book shows how the two methods for image correspondances are used for automatic camera calibration and 3D modelling from two wide-baseline images.
