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.
