Title: IMAGE-BASED 3D PANORAMA
Abstract:
Various disclosed embodiments include methods, systems, and computer-readable media for generating a 3-dimensional (3D) panorama. A method includes receiving (1005) images of a 3D scene. The method includes reconstructing (1010) geometry of a plurality of 3D bubble-views from the images. Reconstructing includes using a structure from motion framework for camera localization (515, 520), generating a 3D surface mesh model of the scene using multi-view stereo via cylindrical surface sweeping for each bubble-view, and registering multiple 3D bubble-views in a common coordinate system. The method includes displaying (1020) the surface mesh model
