Obtaining 3D Models with a Hand-Held Camera
level 12
This tutorial described how 3D models can be obtained from images acquired with a hand-held camera. The presented approach is based on advanced automatic techniques that avoid camera calibration and a priori scene knowledge. This tutorial included interest point extraction and matching, projective calibration, self-calibration, dense matching, and 3D modeling. Applications ranging from archaeology to planetary exploration were presented.

Basic knowledge of 3D computer graphics and geometry. Some knowledge of 3D modeling from images.

Interest point extraction, multiview relations, robust matching, projective calibration, self- calibration, bundle adjustment, image-pair rectification, dense stereo matching, multiview matching, surface generation, and volumetric modeling.
