Structure from motion (SfM) is a photogrammetric range imaging technique for estimating three-dimensional structures from two-dimensional image sequences that may be coupled with local motion signals. It is studied in the fields of computer vision and visual perception. In biological vision, SfM refers to the phenomenon by which humans (and other living creatures) can recover 3D structure from the projected 2D (retinal) motion field of a moving object or scene.
We introduce Structure from Motion as a method for constructing 3D models of objects, architecture, and landscapes using digital photography and discuss guidelines and strategies for taking indoor and outdoor photographs sufficient for this purpose.
Students will construct 3D models using their own photographic data.
