I see a problem with the last diagram that I drew. It shows a distance between the eye and the picture plane as it was based on drawing sketches to scale. I’m guessing the setup will be different with a camera as I’d image this length would be the lens focal length.
Nick if you had time to draw a sketch that would be sound.
Shawn, I’ve got no woes with buying a book on this - would you mind explaining a little about what the book describes for this process? And is it without the use of software? I thought matchmoving was purely for video. I won’t necessarily have stereo images otherwise I just use imagemodeler or matchmover.
Working in engineering, it would be quite reasonable to have these factors to work with:
image with metadata alone or
image and gps data for image
image, gps and site survey
stereo images and any of the above
But I want to be able to deal with the worse option which will often be the case.
