Mosaicing with Strips on Adaptive Manifolds
Creating pictures having larger field of view, by combining many smaller images, is common since the beginning of photography, as the camera’s field of view is smaller than the human field of view. In addition, some large objects can not be captured in a single picture as is the case in aerial photography. Using omnidirectional cameras  can sometimes provide a partial solution, but the images obtained with such cameras have substantial distortions, and capturing a wide field of view with the limited resolution of a video camera compromises image resolution. A common solution is photo-mosaicing: aligning and pasting pictures, or frames in a video sequence, to create a wider view. Digital photography enabled new implementations for mosaicing [184, 185, 212, 38, 122, 273], which were first applied to aerial and satellite images, and later used for scene and object representation.
