2: Obtaining 3D Models With a Hand-Held Camera
Sunday, Tutorial, 10 am - noon
Room 408

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 image, the cameras, and the scene. Applications range from archaeology to planetary exploration.

Prerequisites
This tutorial is accessible to a wide audience with diverse backgrounds. It requires basic understanding of 3D geometry and perspective projection. A full appreciation of the course requires some knowledge of projective geometry, computer vision, and image-processing techniques.

Topics
Feature point extraction and matching, multi-view relations, robust matching, projective structure and motion recovery, self-calibration, bundle adjustment, image-pair rectification, dense stereo matching, multi-view matching, 3D surface modeling, and applications.
