Title: A METHOD FOR IMPROVING POSITION INFORMATION ASSOCIATED WITH A COLLECTION OF IMAGES
Abstract:
The present invention is related to a method and system for improving position information associated with a collection of images. More in particular, the present invention is related to a method and system for improving position information of images that have been obtained using a camera system comprising at least one camera mounted on or to a vehicle. According to the invention, a 3D model is constructed from an overlapping region in which at least two images obtained at different positions of the vehicle among the collection of images at least partially overlap. By comparing the 3D model to an aerial image, the position of the 3D model can be updated.
