3D Solid Reconstruction from Ground Level Still PhotographyHome
A simple demonstration of the potential of 'VisualSFM' in 3D reconstructive processes and Photogrammetric applications.
A single sample image - one of 47 taken around the building at approximately 2M above ground.
An Orthophoto derived from the reconstruction process
a Fly-Around animation of the 3D reconstruction using exactly the same data used for the above orthophoto. Note the apparent snow and holes at various points which are artifacts of the reconstructive process. Where parts of the subject are not visible from the ground (e.g. the ridge and other roof elements) or the surface is without texture (e.g. glass) only partial reconstruction can take place and holes will appear in the reconstructed mesh.
Acknowledgements are made to ChanChang Wu for ‘VisualSFM’, a GUI application for 3D reconstruction , Michal Jancosek for the multi-view reconstruction software ‘CMPMVS’ , the designers of ‘Meshlab’ an open source, portable, and extensible system for the processing and editing of unstructured 3D triangular meshes and the open source 3D graphics and animation software ‘Blender’ without all of which this project would not have been possible.
