Abstract

Image sensor technology provides in recent years the tools for wide-angle and high-resolution 3D recording, analysis and modeling of static or dynamic scenes, ranging from small objects such as artifacts in a museum to large-scale 3D models of a castle or 3D city maps, also allowing real time 3D data acquisition from a moving platform, such as in vision-based driver assistance. The paper documents a particular subfield of these developments by providing mappings of omnidirectional images (catadioptric or dioptric images) into panoramic images on a cylinder. The mappings are specified by using the geometries of omnidirectional cameras. Image examples illustrate potentials for projects in arts, science or technology.
