Paper Abstract

We present a generating method of stereoscopic images from moving pictures captured by a single high-definition television camera mounted on the Japanese lunar orbiter Kaguya (Selenological and Engineering Explorer, SELENE). Since objects in the moving pictures look as if they are moving vertically, vertical disparity is caused by the time offset of the sequence. This vertical disparity is converted into horizontal disparity by rotating the images by 90 degrees. We can create stereoscopic images using the rotated images as the images for a left and right eyes. However, this causes spatial distortion resulting from the axi-asymmetrical positions of the corresponding left and right cameras. We reduced this by adding a depth map that was obtained by assuming that the lunar surface was spherical. We confirmed that we could provide more acceptable views of the Moon by using the correction method.
