Paper Abstract

With a stereo arrangement of CCD cameras the shape and size of human faces are determined. The 3D-reconstruction algorithm is based on the Multiphoto Geometrically Constrained Matching technique which allows for precise and reliable solutions. The image matching procedure is fully automatic. Results of different object visualization methods are compared to each other: natural facial texture and structured light. The 3D-data is passed over to a finite element surface modelling program, which allows to compute derived information like profiles, single points, grid points, perspective views, etc. The technique and the algorithms may also be applied to other problems in biostereometrics.
