Paper Abstract

Based on Leshan Grand Buddha’s isoline images gained from conventional close-range photogrammetry work many years ago, a simple digitized method is suggested in this paper for 3D reconstruction of such famous buddhas, which is very important for these buddhas’ reparation, research and reproduction. The whole work of 3D Buddha reconstruction includes digitization of buddha’s contour line map, generation of digital buddha model, texture mapping using close-range imagery as well as 3D simulation and animation. The experiment shows that the GIS software package GeoStar can be directly used for 3D generation and visualization of Chinese buddhas.
