Image-based modelling (IBM) refers to techniques for acquiring 3D object information from two or more images.
Image-based modelling (IBM) refers to techniques for acquiring 3D object information from two or more images. This includes traditional photogrammetric techniques for data acquisition from airborne or terrestrial images. Moreover, techniques developed in the computer vision community, like for example "Structure from Motion" (SfM), i.e. the derivation 3D point information from an image sequence, or dense matching techniques belong to the group of IBM approaches.
In this module the current IBM and 3D geo-information processing techniques are reviewed. A practical part will allow the participants to actually apply IBM techniques, including image acquisition with a handheld camera. Several sets of images and different software packages are available to facilitate both manual and semi-automatic approaches. Another task is to use a terrestrial laser scanner to produce a point cloud in order to compare the results from IBM techniques with active sensors data. In a written report the IBM technique and laser scanning will be described and the results of the practical work will be evaluated.
The participants will learn to evaluate and apply Image-based modelling (IBM) techniques and to present scientific results in a report and in front of an audience.
BM approaches: Modelling and object reconstruction from images: manual/automated/fully automatic (research approaches). Hands-on excercises using images captured with own camera.
