Mosaicing of flattened images from straight homogeneous generalized cylinders
This paper presents a new method for reconstructing paintings from component images. A set of monocular images of a painting from a straight homogeneous generalized cylinder is taken from various viewpoints. After deriving the surface localization in the camera, coordinate system, the images are backprojected on the curved surface and flattened. We derive the perspective distortion of the scene in the case when it is mapped on a cylindrical surface. Based on the result of this study we derive the necessary number of views in order to represent the entire scene depicted on a cylindrical surface. We propose a matching-based mosaicing algorithm for reconstructing the scene from the curved surface. The proposed algorithm is applyed on paintings.
