Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

  • Overview of problems and methods in geometric computing such as image based visualization and automatic shape recognition.
  • Basic algebra and geometry of imaging systems.
  • Geometric basis of texture mapping.
  • Mathematics and geometry of multiple views.
  • Calibration and 3D reconstruction from multiple views.

Intended learning outcomes *

After the completion of the course the student is expected to

  • describe the research area of image-based 3D visualization and commercial systems for this,
  • give an account for the mathematical and geometric foundations used in image-based 3D reconstruction and visualization,
  • apply known methods for mathematical and numerical treatment of problems of geometric nature,
  • implement methods for automatic extraction of geometric information from images,
  • describe how a system for automatic creation of 3D models from known images might look like,
  • describe the most common methods for image-based rendering.
