Photogrammetric computer vision techniques and laser scanning systems can directly provide 3D models of real objects by automatically or selectively sampling the positions of a set of representative surface points. Depending on the dimension and on the shape complexity of the geometric entity under study, its complete survey often requires a multiple view approach that leads to the creation of a set of partial and independent 3D models of the same object. These parts must be then joined together to reconstruct the complete object model.
