Multi-resolution space carving using level set methods

Slabaugh, G. G., Schafer, R. W. & Hans, M. C. (2002). Multi-resolution space carving using level set methods. In: ICIP (2). 2002 International Conference on Image Processing., 22-09-2002 - 25-09-2002, New York, USA.


We present a multi-resolution space carving algorithm that reconstructs a 3D model of a visual scene photographed by a calibrated digital camera placed at multiple viewpoints. Our approach employs a level set framework for reconstructing the scene. Unlike most standard space carving approaches, our level set approach produces a smooth reconstruction composed of manifold surfaces. Our method outputs a polygonal model, instead of a collection of voxels. We texture-map the reconstructed geometry using the photographs, and then render the model to produce photo-realistic new views of the scene.
