About this book


“This book guides you in the journey of 3D modeling from the theory with elegant mathematics to applications with beautiful 3D model pictures. Written in a simple, straightforward, and concise manner, readers will learn the state of the art of 3D reconstruction and modeling.” —Professor Takeo Kanade, Carnegie Mellon University

About this book:

  • The computer vision and graphics communities use different terminologies for the same ideas
  • This books provides a translation, enabling graphics researchers to apply vision concepts, and vice-versa
  • Independence of chapters allows readers to directly jump into a specific chapter of interest
  • Compared to other texts, gives more succinct treatment overall, and focuses primarily on vision geometry

Image-Based Modeling is for graduate students, researchers, and engineers working in the areas of computer vision, computer graphics, image processing, robotics, virtual reality, and photogrammetry.

About the Author: Long Quan is a Professor of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. He received a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from INRIA, and has been a CNRS researcher at INRIA. Professor Quan is a Fellow of the IEEE Computer Society.
