SEMI-AUTOMATIC FLOOR-PLAN RECONSTRUCTION FROM A 360º PANORAMIC IMAGE

Abstract

The ease of panorama creation has made it very popular. Although it is a very convenient way to convey the environment, panoramic images can often be confusing. This discomfort has major influence in a 360 degree indoor panorama, where the viewer is forced to look in all the directions at the same time. In this paper we propose an alternative approach for visualization of the indoor environment. Instead of using the panorama directly, our method reconstructs a floor-plan from it and displays the created 3D model. During the reconstruction the user is only required to mark the corners in the original image. For the wall planes we use unwrapped texture mapping. Our experiments show that the proposed approach copes very well with the complex environments that include large spaces and corridors.
