MULTIPLE-VIEWPOINT IMAGE STITCHING

Kai-Chi Chan, Yiu-Sang Moon

Abstract

A wide view image can be generated from a collection of images. Its field of view can be expanded as much as to capture a 360º scene. Common approaches, like panorama, mosaic, assume all source images are taken at the same camera center by pure rotation. However, this assumption limits the quality and feasibility of the generated images. In this paper, the problem of generating a wide view image from multiple viewpoint images is formulated. A simple and novel way is proposed to loosen the single viewpoint constraint. A wide view image is generated by 1) transforming images from different viewpoints into a unified viewpoint using SIFT feature matching, etc; 2) stitching the transformed images together by overlapping. Test results demonstrate that the proposed method is an efficient way for stitching images from different viewpoints.
