Paper Abstract

This paper addresses a new scheme of acquisition of 3D image representation from range data and texture data. The concept of a layered structure defined for painting, such as long- range, mid-range, and short-range views, that can be applied to a 3D image. Long and mid-range views are located at a reasonable distance, and therefore do not require the perfect 3D structure. Instead of describing the perfect 3D structure, an image can be represented more simply with range information through a plane-model approximation. Setting representation can be used like stage setting to approximate objects and describe a 3D structure by plane- model. It is effective as a simplified means of describing 3D image space as in long and mid-range views that does not require a detailed 3D structure. We can obtain the parameters of plane shape from the integration of range data measured by a 3D laser scanner and a number of still images captured by a digital camera.
