Talor JitendraMalik UniversitofCaliforniaat Berkele 1 ABSTRACT Wepresentanewapproachformodelingandrenderingeistingarchitectural scenesfrom asparsesetof still photographs. Our modeling approach, which combines both geometrbasedand imagebased techniques, has two components. The first component is a photogrammetricmodelingmethodwhichfacilitatestherecoverof thebasicgeometrofthephotographedscene. Ourphotogrammetric modelingapproachis effective, convenient,androbustbecause it eploits the constraints that are characteristic of architectural scenes. Thesecondcomponentis amodelbasedstereo algorithm, which recovers how the real scene deviates from the basic model. Bmakinguseofthemodel,ourstereotechniquerobustlrecovers accuratedepthfrom widelspacedimagepairs. Consequentl,our approachcanmodellargearchitecturalenvironmentswithfarfewer photographs than current imagebased modeling approaches. For producingrenderings,wepresentviewdependentteturemapping, amethodof compositingmultiple views of ascenethat better simulates geometricdetailonbasicmodels. Ourapproachcanbeused to recovermodelsfor useineither geometrbasedorimagebased rendering sstems. Wepresent results that demonstrate our approach sabilittocreaterealisticrenderingsofarchitecturalscenes from viewpointsfar from theoriginal photographs.

In particular, efforts to model architectural scenes, from the Amiens Cathedral to the Giza Pramids to Berkele s Soda Hall, have produced impressive walkthroughs and inspiring flbs.

First,theprocessisetremellaborintensive,tpicall involving surveing the site, locating and digitizing architectural plans(ifavailable),orconvertingeistingcaddata(again,ifavailable). Second,it is difficulttoverifwhethertheresultingmodelis accurate. Most disappointing,though, is that the renderings of the resultingmodelsarenoticeablcomputergenerated;eventhosethat emploliberalteturemappinggenerallfailtoresemblerealphotographs. Figure 1: Schematic of how our hbrid approach combines geometrbasedandimagebasedapproachestomodelingandrenderingarchitecturefromphotographs. Recentl, creating models directl from photographs has received increased interest in computer graphics. Since real images areusedas input, suchanimagebasedsstem(fig. 1c) hasanadvantagein producingphotorealistic renderings as output. Some of the most promisingof thesesstems[16, 13] rel on the computer visiontechniqueofcomputationalstereopsistoautomaticalldeterminethestructureofthescenefromthemultiplephotographsavailable. As aconsequence,however,thesesstemsareonl as strong as the underling stereoalgorithms. This has causedproblems because stateoftheart stereo algorithms have anumber of significantweaknesses;inparticular,thephotographsneedtoappearver similar for reliable results to be obtained. Becauseof this, current imagebasedtechniquesmustusemancloselspacedimages,and insomecasesemplosignificantamountsofuserinputforeachimagepair to supervisethe stereoalgorithm. In this framework, capturingthedataforarealisticallrenderablemodelwouldrequirean impracticalnumberofcloselspacedphotographs,andderivingthe depthfromthephotographscouldrequireanimpracticalamountof userinput. Theseconcessionstotheweaknessof stereoalgorithms bode poorl for creating largescale, freel navigable virtual environmentsfrom photographs. Ourresearchaims tomaketheprocessofmodelingarchitectural

Todothis,wehavedeveloped anewapproachthatdrawsonthestrengthsofbothgeometrbased andimagebasedmethods,asillustratedinfig. 1b. Theresultisthat ourapproachtomodelingandrenderingarchitecturerequiresonla sparsesetofphotographsandcanproducerealisticrenderingsfrom arbitrar viewpoints. In our approach, abasic geometric model of the architectureis recoveredinteractivelwith aneastousephotogrammetricmodelingsstem,novelviewsarecreatedusingviewdependentteturemapping,andadditional geometricdetail canbe recovered automaticall through stereo correspondence. The final images can be rendered with current imagebased rendering techniques. Because onl photographs are required, our approach to modeling architecture is neither invasive nor does it require architecturalplans,cadmodels,orspecializedinstrumentationsuchas surveingequipment,gpssensorsor rangescanners. 1.1 Background and Related Work The process of recovering 3D structure from 2D images has been acentral endeavorwithin computer vision, and the processof rendering such recovered structures is asubject receiving increased interest in computer graphics. Although no general technique eists to derivemodelsfrom images,fourparticular areasof research haveprovidedresultsthatareapplicabletotheproblemofmodeling andrendering architectural scenes. Theare: Camera Calibration, Structure from Motion, Stereo Correspondence, and ImageBased Rendering Camera Calibration Recovering3D structure from images becomes asimpler problem whenthecamerasusedarecalibrated,thatis,themappingbetween imagecoordinatesanddirectionsrelativeto eachcamerais known. This mappingis determined b,among other parameters,the camera sfocal length and its pattern of radial distortion. Camera calibrationisawellstudiedproblembothinphotogrammetrandcomputer vision;somesuccessfulmethods include[20] and[5]. While there has beenrecent progress in the useof uncalibratedviews for 3D reconstruction [7], we have found camera calibration to be a straightforward processthatconsiderablsimplifiestheproblem Structure from Motion Given the 2D projection of apoint in the world, its position in 3D spacecouldbe anwhereon ara etendingout in aparticular direction from the camera soptical center. However, when the projections of asufficient numberof points in the world are observed inmultipleimagesfromdifferentpositions,itistheoreticallpossibletodeducethe3dlocationsofthepoints aswellas thepositions oftheoriginal cameras,uptoanunknownfactor ofscale. This problem has been studied in the area of photogrammetr for theprincipal purposeof producingtopographicmaps. In 1913, Kruppa[10] provedthefundamentalresultthat giventwo viewsof five distinct points, one could recover the rotation and translation betweenthetwocamerapositionsaswellasthe3dlocationsofthe points(uptoascalefactor). Sincethen,theproblem smathematical andalgorithmicaspectshavebeeneploredstartingfromthefundamentalworkofullman[21] andlonguethiggins[11],intheearl 1980s. Faugeras sbook[6]overviewsthestateoftheartasof1992. So far, ake realization has been that the recover of structure is versensitivetonoiseinimagemeasurementswhenthetranslation betweentheavailablecamerapositions is small. Attention has turned to using more than two views with image streammethodssuchas[19]orrecursiveapproaches(e.g. [1]). [19] showsecellentresultsforthecaseoforthographiccameras,butdirect solutions for the perspective case remain elusive. In general, linear algorithms for the problem fail to make use of all available informationwhilenonlinearminimizationmethodsarepronetodifficultiesarisingfromlocalminimaintheparameterspace. Analternativeformulation oftheproblem[17] useslines ratherthanpoints as image measurements, but the previousl stated concerns were shown to remain largel valid. For purposes of computer graphics,thereis etanotherproblem: themodelsrecoveredbthesealgorithms consistof sparsepoint fields or individual line segments, whicharenot directlrenderableassolid3dmodels. In our approach, we eploit the fact that we are tring to recovergeometricmodelsofarchitecturalscenes,notarbitrar threedimensional point sets. This enables us to include additional constraints not tpicall availableto structurefrom motion algorithms and to overcomethe problems of numerical instabilit that plague suchapproaches. Ourapproachis demonstratedinausefulinteractivesstemfor buildingarchitecturalmodelsfrom photographs Stereo Correspondence The geometricaltheor of structure from motion assumesthat one isabletosolvethecorrespondenceproblem,whichistoidentifthe pointsin twoor moreimagesthatareprojections ofthesamepoint in the world. In humans, correspondingpoints in the two slightl differing images on the retinas are determined bthe visual corte intheprocesscalledbinocularstereopsis. Years of research(e.g. [2, 4, 8, 9, 12, 15]) have shownthat determiningstereocorrespondencesbcomputeris difficultproblem. Ingeneral,currentmethodsaresuccessfulonlwhentheimagesare similarinappearance,asinthecaseofhumanvision,whichis usuallobtainedbusingcamerasthatarecloselspacedrelativetothe objectsinthescene. Whenthedistancebetweenthecameras(often called the baseline) becomes large, surfaces in the images ehibit different degreesof foreshortening,different patterns of occlusion, andlargedisparitiesintheirlocationsinthetwoimages,allofwhich makesit muchmoredifficult for the computertodeterminecorrect stereocorrespondences.unfortunatel,thealternativeofimproving stereocorrespondencebusingimagestakenfromnearblocations has the disadvantagethat computingdepthbecomesver sensitive tonoisein imagemeasurements. In this paper,we showthat havinganapproimatemodelof the photographedscenemakes it possibleto robustl determine stereo correspondences from images taken from widel varing viewpoints. Specificall, the model enables us to warp the images to eliminate unequalforeshorteningandto predict major instancesof occlusionbeforetringto findcorrespondences ImageBased Rendering In animagebasedrenderingsstem, the modelconsistsof aset of images of asceneand their correspondingdepth maps. When the depth of ever point in an image is known, the image can be rerenderedfrom annearbpoint ofview bprojectingthepiels of the image to their proper 3D locations and reprojecting them onto anew image plane. Thus, anew image of the sceneis created b warping the images accordingto their depthmaps. Aprincipal attraction of imagebasedrendering is that it offers amethodof rendering arbitraril comple scenes with aconstantamount of computationrequiredperpiel. Usingthis propert,[23] demonstrated howregularl spacedsntheticimages (with their computeddepth maps)couldbewarpedandcompositedinrealtimetoproduceavirtualenvironment. Morerecentl,[13]presentedarealtimeimagebasedrendering sstem that used panoramic photographs with depth computed, in part,fromstereocorrespondence.onefindingofthepaperwasthat etracting reliable depth estimates from stereo is ver difficult. The method was nonetheless able to obtain acceptable results for nearbviews usinguserinput to aidthe stereodepthrecover: the correspondencemapforeachimagepairwasseededwith100to500 usersuppliedpointcorrespondencesandalsopostprocessed.even 2

Therequirementthat samplesbe closetogether is aserious limitation to generating afreel navigable virtual environment. Covering the size of just one cit block would require thousands of panoramic images spaced five feet apart. Clearl, acquiring so manphotographsisimpractical. Moreover,evenadenselatticeof groundbasedphotographswouldonlallowrenderingstobegeneratedfrom withinafewfeetoftheoriginal cameralevel,precluding anvirtualflbsofthescene. Etendingthedenselatticeofphotographs into three dimensionswould clearl makethe acquisition process even more difficult. The approachdescribedin this paper takesadvantageof thestructureinarchitecturalscenessothatit requiresonlasparsesetofphotographs. Foreample,ourapproach hasieldedavirtualflaroundofabuildingfrom justtwelvestandardphotographs. 1.2 Overview In this paper we present three new modeling and rendering techniques: photogrammetric modeling, viewdependent teture mapping, andmodelbasedstereo. Weshow how thesetechniquescan be used in conjunction to ield aconvenient, accurate, and photorealistic methodof modelingandrendering architecture from photographs. Inourapproach,thephotogrammetricmodelingprogram isusedtocreateabasicvolumetricmodelofthescene,whichisthen usedto constrainstereomatching. Our renderingmethod compositesinformationfrommultipleimageswithviewdependentteturemapping. Our approach is successful becauseit splits the task of modelingfrom imagesintotaskswhichareeasilaccomplishedb aperson(butnotacomputeralgorithm), andtaskswhichareeasil performedbacomputeralgorithm (butnotaperson). In Section 2, we present our photogrammetric modeling method. Inessence,wehaverecastthestructurefrommotionproblem not as the recover of individual point coordinates, but as the recoveroftheparametersofaconstrainedhierarchofparametric primitives. The result is that accurate architectural models can be recoveredrobustlfromjustafewphotographsandwithaminimal numberof usersuppliedcorrespondences. InSection3,wepresentviewdependentteturemapping,and showhowitcanbeusedtorealisticallrendertherecoveredmodel. Unlike traditional teturemapping, in which asingle static image is used to color in each face of the model, viewdependent teturemappinginterpolates betweentheavailablephotographsofthe scenedependingon the user spoint of view. This results in more lifelike animations that better capturesurfacespecularities andunmodeledgeometricdetail. Lastl, in Section 4, we present modelbased stereo, which is usedtoautomaticallrefineabasicmodelofaphotographedscene. This techniquecanbeusedto recoverthestructure ofarchitectural ornamentation that would be difficult to recover with photogrammetricmodeling. Inparticular,weshowthatprojectingpairsofimages onto an initial approimatemodel allows conventionalstereo techniques to robustl recover ver accurate depth measurements from imageswith widelvaringviewpoints. 2 Photogrammetric Modeling In this sectionwepresentour methodfor photogrammetricmodeling, in which the computer determines the parameters of ahierarchicalmodelof parametricpolhedralprimitives toreconstructthe architectural scene. Wehaveimplemented this methodin Faç ade, aneastouseinteractivemodelingprogramthatallows theuserto constructageometricmodelofascenefromdigitizedphotographs. WefirstoverviewFaç adefromthepointofviewoftheuser,thenwe describeour model representation, andthen we eplain our reconstructionalgorithm. Lastl,wepresentresultsfromusingFaç adeto reconstructseveralarchitectural scenes. 2.1 The User s View Constructing ageometric model of an architectural scene using Faç adeisanincrementalandstraightforwardprocess. Tpicall,the userselectsasmallnumberofphotographstobeginwith,andmodelsthesceneonepieceatatime. Theusermarefinethemodeland includemoreimagesintheprojectuntilthemodelmeetsthedesired levelofdetail. Fig. 2(a)and(b)showsthetwotpesofwindowsusedinFaç ade: image viewers and model viewers. The user instantiates the componentsof the model, marks edgesin the images, andcorresponds theedgesintheimagestotheedgesinthemodel. Wheninstructed, Faç adecomputesthesizesandrelativepositionsofthemodelcomponentsthat bestfit theedgesmarkedinthephotographs. Components of the model, called blocks, are parameterized geometric primitives such as boes, prisms, and surfaces of revolution. Abo,foreample,isparameterizedbits length,width,and height. The user models the scene as acollection of such blocks, creatingnewblockclassesas desired. Of course,the userdoesnot needto specif numerical values for the blocks parameters, since thesearerecoveredbtheprogram. The userma chooseto constrainthe sizesand positions of an oftheblocks. InFig. 2(b),mostoftheblockshavebeenconstrained to have equal length and width. Additionall, the four pinnacles havebeenconstrainedto havethesameshape. Blocksmaalsobe placedin constrainedrelations to oneother. For eample,manof theblocksinfig. 2(b) havebeenconstrainedtositcenteredandon topoftheblockbelow. Suchconstraintsarespecifiedusingagraphical3Dinterface. Whensuchconstraintsareprovided,theareused tosimplif thereconstructionproblem. The user marks edge features in the images using apointandclickinterface;agradientbasedtechniqueasin[14] canbeusedto align the edges with subpiel accurac. Weuse edge rather than point features since the are easier to localize and less likel to be completel obscured. Onl asection of each edge needs to be marked,making it possibleto usepartiall visibleedges. For each markededge,the user alsoindicates the correspondingedgein the model. Generall,accuratereconstructionsareobtainedifthereare as man correspondences in the images as there are free camera andmodelparameters. Thus,Faç adereconstructsscenesaccuratel evenwhenjustaportionof thevisibleedgesandmarkedintheimages, and when just aportion of the model edges are given correspondences. Atantime,theusermainstructthecomputertoreconstructthe scene. The computer then solves for the parameters of the model that causeit to align with the markedfeatures in the images. During thereconstruction,the computercomputesanddisplas thelocationsfromwhichthephotographsweretaken. Forsimplemodels consistingofjustafewblocks,afullreconstructiontakesonlafew seconds;for more complemodels, it cantakeafew minutes. For this reason,theusercaninstruct thecomputerto emplofaster but less precisereconstructionalgorithms (see Sec. 2.4) during theintermediatestagesof modeling. Toverifthetheaccuracoftherecoveredmodelandcamerapositions,Faç adecanprojectthemodelintotheoriginalphotographs. Tpicall, the projected model deviates from the photographs b lessthanapiel. Fig. 2(c)showstheresultsofprojectingtheedges ofthemodelinfig. 2(b) intotheoriginal photograph. Lastl,the usermageneratenovelviews of themodelbpositioningavirtualcameraatandesiredlocation.

In Faç ade, the sceneis representedas aconstrainedhierarchical model of parametric polhedral primitives, called blocks. Each block has asmall set of parameters which serve to define its size and shape. Each coordinate of each verte of the block is thenepressedaslinearcombinationoftheblock sparameters,relative to an internal coordinate frame. For eample, for the wedge block in Fig. 3, the coordinates of the verte P o are written in terms of theblockparameters width, height, andlength as P o = (,width;,height;length ) T.Eachblockis alsogivenanassociatedboundingbo. wedge_height P 0 Bounding Bo z wedge_width wedge_depth Figure3: Awedgeblockwith its parametersandboundingbo. roof z first_store z ground_plane z z entrance roof ground_plane g (X) 1 first_store g (X) 2 entrance (a) (b) Figure 4: (a) Ageometric model of asimple building.

TheblocksinFaç adeareorganizedinahierarchicaltreestructure asshowninfig. 4(b). Eachnodeofthetreerepresentsanindividual block,whilethelinksinthetreecontainthespatialrelationshipsbetweenblocks,calledrelations. Suchhierarchicalstructuresarealso usedintraditional modelingsstems. Therelationbetweenablockanditsparentismostgenerallrepresentedas arotationmatri R andatranslationvector t. This representationrequiressiparameters: threeeachfor R and t. Inarchitectural scenes,however,therelationship betweentwo blocks usuall has asimple form that canbe representedwith fewer parameters, andfaçadeallowstheusertobuildsuchconstraintson R and t intothemodel. Therotation R betweenablockandits parentcan bespecifiedinoneofthreewas: first,asanunconstrainedrotation, requiring three parameters; second,as arotation about aparticular coordinateais,requiringjust oneparameter;or third, as afiedor nullrotation, requiringnoparameters. Likewise, Faç ade allows for constraints to be placed on each component of the translation vector t. Specificall, the user can constrainthe boundingboes of two blocks to align themselves in some manner along eachdimension. For eample, in order to ensurethattheroof blockin Fig. 4lies ontopof thefirststor block, the usercan require thatthe maimum etentof the firststor block be equal to the minimum etent of the roof block. With this constraint, the translation along the ais is computed (t = (firststor MA X, roof MIN )) rather than representedas aparameterof themodel. Eachparameterof eachinstantiatedblockis actuallareference to anamedsmbolic variable, as illustrated in Fig. 5. As aresult, two parameters of different blocks (or of the same block) can be equatedbhavingeachparameterreferencethesamesmbol. This facilit allows theuser to equatetwo or more of the dimensionsin amodel, which makes modeling smmetrical blocks and repeated structuremoreconvenient. Importantl,theseconstraintsreducethe numberofdegreesoffreedominthemodel,which,aswewillshow, simplifiesthestructure recoverproblem. Once the blocks and their relations have beenparameterized, it is straightforward to derive epressions for the world coordinates of the block vertices. Consider the set of edges which link aspecific block in the model to the ground plane as shown in Fig. 4. 4

The minimization algorithm differentiates these epressions smbolicall to evaluate the gradient and Hessian after each iteration. The procedureis inepensivesince the epressions for d and v in Equations2and1haveaparticularlsimpleform. 2.4 Computing an Initial Estimate TheobjectivefunctiondescribedinSection2.3sectionisnonlinear with respecttothemodelandcameraparametersandconsequentl can have local minima. If the algorithm begins at arandom location in the parameter space,it stands little chanceof convergingto thecorrectsolution. Toovercomethis problemwehavedeveloped amethodto directl computeagoodinitial estimate for the model parametersandcamerapositionsthatisnearthecorrectsolution. In practice, our initial estimate method consistentl enables the nonlinearminimization algorithm toconvergetothecorrectsolution. Ourinitialestimatemethodconsistsoftwoproceduresperformed in sequence. The first procedure estimates the camera rotations whilethesecondestimatesthecameratranslationsandtheparametersofthemodel. Bothinitialestimateproceduresarebaseduponan eaminationof Equation3.

Equation 6reflects the constraint that allofthepointsonthelinedefinedbthetuple hv; di shouldlieon theplanewithnormalvector m passingthroughthecameracenter. This constraintis epressedinthefollowing objectivefunction O 2 where P i(x) and Q i(x) areepressionsfortheverticesofanedge ofthemodel.

Tpicall,theminimization requiresfewer than ten iterations and adjusts the parameters of the modelb at most a few percentfrom the initial estimates.

Thisformofteturemapping is most effective when the model conforms closel to the actual structureof thescene,andwhentheoriginal photographsshowthe sceneinsimilarlightingconditions. InSection4wewill showhow viewdependent teturemapping can be used in conjunction with modelbasedstereotoproducerealisticrenderingswhentherecoveredmodelonlapproimatelmodels thestructureofthescene. Since the camera positions of the original photographs are recoveredduringthe modelingphase,projectingthe imagesonto the model is straightforward. In this section we first describehow we projectasingleimageontothemodel,andthenhowwemergeseveral image projections to render the entire model. Unlike traditional teturemapping, our method projects different images onto themodeldependingontheuser sviewpoint. Asaresult,ourviewdependentteture mapping can give abetter illusion of additional geometricdetailinthemodel. 3.1 Projecting asingle Image Theprocessof teturemappingasingleimageontothemodelcan be thought of as replacing each camera with aslide projector that projects the original imageontothe model. Whenthemodel is not conve,itis possiblethatsomeparts ofthemodelwill shadowotherswithrespecttothecamera. Whilesuchshadowedregionscould bedeterminedusinganobjectspacevisiblesurfacealgorithm,oran imagespaceracastingalgorithm, weuseanimagespaceshadow mapalgorithm basedon[22] sinceit is efficientlimplementedusingzbuffer hardware. Fig. 11,upperleft, showsthe results of mappingasingle image onto the high school building model. The recoveredcamera position for the projected imageis indicatedin the lower left corner of theimage. Becauseofselfshadowing,noteverpointonthemodel within thecamera sviewingfrustum is mapped. 3.2 Compositing Multiple Images In general, each photograph will view onl apiece of the model. Thus,it is usuallnecessartousemultiple imagesinorder torendertheentire modelfrom anovelpointof view. Thetop imagesof Fig. 11showtwodifferent imagesmappedontothemodelandrenderedfromanovelviewpoint. Somepielsarecoloredinjustoneof the renderings, while some are coloredin both. Thesetwo renderings can be merged into acompositerendering b consideringthe correspondingpiels intherenderedviews. If apielis mappedin onlonerendering,itsvaluefromthatrenderingisusedinthecomposite. If it is mappedinmorethanonerendering,therendererhas todecidewhichimage(or combinationof images)to use. It wouldbeconvenient,ofcourse,iftheprojectedimageswould agree perfectl where the overlap. However, the images will not necessarilagreeifthereisunmodeledgeometricdetailinthebuilding,orifthesurfacesofthebuildingehibitnonlambertianreflection. In this case, the best image to use is clearl the one with the viewingangleclosesttothat ofthe renderedview. However,using theimageclosestinangleateverpielmeansthatneighboringrenderedpielsmabesampledfrom differentoriginalimages. When thishappens,specularitandunmodeledgeometricdetailcancause visible seams in the rendering. Toavoid this problem, we smooth thesetransitions throughweightedaveragingas infig. 12. Figure 11: The process of assembling projected images to form a composite rendering. The top two pictures show two images projectedontothemodelfromtheir respectiverecoveredcamerapositions. Thelower left pictureshowstheresultsof compositingthese two renderingsusing our viewdependentweighting function. The lower right picture shows the results of compositing renderingsof all twelve original images. Some piels near the front edge of the roof not seen in an image have beenfilled in with the holefilling algorithmfrom[23]. Even with this weighting, neighboring piels can still be sampledfromdifferentviewsattheboundarofaprojectedimage,since thecontribution of animagemustbezerooutsideits boundar. To 7

In this section we present anew method of recoveringsuchadditionalgeometricdetailautomaticallthroughstereo correspondence, which we call modelbased stereo. Modelbased stereodiffers fromtraditional stereointhatit measureshowtheactual scenedeviatesfrom the approimatemodel,rather thantring tomeasurethestructureofthescenewithoutanpriorinformation.

Thestereocorrespondenceinformationcanthenbeusedtorendernovelviewsofthesceneusing imagebasedrenderingtechniques. As in traditional stereo, given two images (which we call the ke andoffset), modelbasedstereo computes the associateddepth map for the ke imageb determining correspondingpoints in the keandoffset images. Likemanstereoalgorithms, ourmethodis correlationbased,inthatitattemptstodeterminethecorresponding point in the offset image b comparingsmall piel neighborhoods aroundthepoints. Assuch,correlationbasedstereoalgorithmsgenerall require the neighborhoodof each point in the ke image to resemblethe neighborhoodof its correspondingpoint in the offset image. The problem we face is that when the ke and offset images are taken from relativel far apart, as is the casefor our modeling method, corresponding piel neighborhoods can be foreshortened verdifferentl. InFigs. 14(a)and(c),pielneighborhoodstoward theright of the keimageareforeshortenedhorizontallb nearl afactorof fourin theoffsetimage.

Someother desirableproperties of thewarpedoffset image are: An point in the scenewhich lies on the approimate model willhavezerodisparitbetweenthekeimageandthewarped offset image. Disparitiesbetweenthekeandwarpedoffsetimagesareeasil convertedto adepthmapfor thekeimage. Depth estimates are far less sensitive to noise in image measurementssinceimages takenfrom relativel farapart canbe compared. Placeswherethemodeloccludesitself relative tothekeimagecanbedetectedandindicatedin thewarpedoffset image. Alinear epipolargeometr (Sec. 4.1) eists betweenthe ke and warped offset images, despite the warping. In fact, the epipolar lines of the warped offset image coincide with the epipolarlines ofthekeimage. 4.1 ModelBased Epipolar Geometr In traditional stereo, the epipolar constraint(see [6]) is often used to constrain the search for corresponding points in the offset image to searching along an epipolar line. This constraint simplifies stereo not onl b reducing the search for eachcorrespondenceto onedimension,butalsobreducingthechanceofselectingafalse matches. Inthissectionweshowthattakingadvantageoftheepipolarconstraintisnomoredifficultinmodelbasedstereocase,despite thefactthat theoffsetimageis nonuniforml warped. Fig. 15shows the epipolargeometr for modelbasedstereo. If weconsiderapoint P inthescene,thereisauniqueepipolarplane whichpassesthrough P andthe centersof the keandoffset cameras. Thisepipolarplaneintersects thekeandoffsetimageplanes in epipolar lines e k and e o.if we considerthe projection p k of P ontothekeimageplane,theepipolarconstraintstatesthatthecorrespondingpointin the offset imagemust lie somewherealongthe offset image sepipolarline. Inmodelbasedstereo,neighborhoodsinthekeimagearecomparedtothewarpedoffsetimageratherthantheoffsetimage. Thus, to makeuseof the epipolar constraint, it is necessarto determine wherethepielsontheoffsetimage sepipolarlineprojecttointhe warpedoffsetimage. Thewarpedoffsetimageisformedbprojectingtheoffsetimageontothemodel,andthenreprojectingthemodel ontotheimageplaneofthe kecamera. Thus,the projection p o of P intheoffset imageprojects ontothemodelat Q, andthenreprojects to q k in the warpedoffset image. Since eachof theseprojectionsoccurswithintheepipolarplane,anpossiblecorrespondence ke / warped offset image p p o q k epipolar lines k Ke Camera approimate model e k Q P actual structure epipolar plane e o offset image Offset Camera Figure15: Epipolargeometrfor modelbasedstereo. for p k inthekeimagemustlie onthekeimage sepipolarline in thewarpedoffset image. Inthecasewheretheactualstructureand the modelcoincideat P, p o is projectedto P andthen reprojected to p k,ieldingacorrespondencewithzerodisparit. Thefactthattheepipolargeometrremainslinearafterthewarping step also facilitates the use of the ordering constraint [2, 6] throughadnamicprogrammingtechnique. 4.2 Stereo Results and Rerendering While the warping step makes it dramaticall easier to determine stereo correspondences,astereo algorithm is still necessarto actualldeterminethem. Thealgorithm wedevelopedtoproducethe imagesinthis paperis describedin[3]. Onceadepthmaphasbeencomputedfor aparticular image,we can rerender the scene from novel viewpoints using the methods described in [23, 16, 13]. Furthermore, when several images and theircorrespondingdepthmapsareavailable,wecanusetheviewdependent teturemapping method of Section 3to composite the multiple renderings. The novel views of the chapel faç ade in Fig. 16wereproducedthroughsuchcompositingof fourimages. 5 Conclusion and Future Work Toconclude,wehavepresentedanew,photographbasedapproach to modeling and rendering architectural scenes. Our modeling approach, which combines both geometrbasedand imagebased modeling techniques, is built from two components that we have developed. The first component is an eastouse photogrammet 9

Thedepthis computedfrommodelbasedstereoandtheframesaremadebcompositingimagebasedrenderingswith viewdependentteturemapping. ric modeling sstem which facilitates the recover of abasic geometricmodelofthephotographedscene. Thesecondcomponentis amodelbasedstereo algorithm, which recovers preciselhow the realscenediffers fromthebasicmodel. Forrendering,wehavepresentedviewdependentteturemapping,whichproducesimagesb warpingandcompositingmultiple views of thescene. Throughjudicioususeofimages,models,andhumanassistance,ourapproach is more convenient, more accurate, and more photorealistic than current geometrbased or imagebased approaches for modeling andrenderingrealworld architecturalscenes. Thereareseveralimprovementsandetensionsthatcanbemade toourapproach. First,surfacesofrevolutionrepresentanimportant componentofarchitecture(e.g. domes,columns,andminarets)that arenot recoveredin ourphotogrammetricmodelingapproach. (As noted,thedomeinfig. 10was manuallsizedbtheuser.) Fortunatel,therehas beenmuchwork(e.g. [24]) thatpresents methods of recoveringsuchstructures from image contours. Curved model geometrisalsoentirelconsistentwithourapproachtorecovering additionaldetailwith modelbasedstereo. Second, our techniques should be etended to recognize and modelthephotometricproperties ofthematerials inthescene. The sstem should be able to make better use of photographs taken in varinglighting conditions,and it shouldbe ableto renderimages of the sceneas it would appearat antime of da, in anweather, andwithanconfigurationofartificiallight. Alread,therecovered modelcanbeusedtopredictshadowinginthescenewithrespectto anarbitrar light source. However,afull treatment of the problem will require estimating the photometricproperties (i.e. the bidirectionalreflectancedistributionfunctions)ofthesurfacesinthescene. Third,itisclearthatfurtherinvestigationshouldbemadeintothe problem of selectingwhich original images to use whenrendering anovelviewofthescene. Thisproblemis especialldifficultwhen theavailableimagesaretakenatarbitrarlocations. Ourcurrentsolution to this problem, the weighting functionpresentedin Section 3, still allows seams to appearin renderings and doesnot consider issuesarisingfromimageresampling. Anotherformofviewselectionis requiredtochoosewhichpairsofimagesshouldbematched torecoverdepthin themodelbasedstereoalgorithm. Lastl, it will clearl be an attractive application to integrate the modelscreatedwith thetechniquespresentedin this paperinto forthcomingrealtime imagebasedrenderingsstems.
