MULTI-PERSPECTIVE PANORAMAS OF URBAN SCENES WITHOUT SAMPLING ERRORS

Siyuan Fang, Neill Campbell

Abstract

In this paper we introduce a framework for producing multi-perspective panoramas of urban streets from a dense collection of photographs. The estimated depth information are used to remove sampling errors caused by depth parallax of non-planar scenes. Then, different projections are automatically combined to create the multi-perspective panorama with minimal aspect ratio distortions, which is achieved by a two-phase optimization: firstly, the global optimal configuration of projections is computed and then a local adjustment is applied to eliminate visual artifacts caused by undesirable perspectives.
