CS E6733, 3D Photography
Team Project 2
In this project, each team build a texture mapped, 3D
model using some of the techniques discussed in class. Each team of
students will be responsible for Proposing, Implementing and
Presenting their project to the class. Some potential projects are listed below, but others are
possible. Extra credit will be given to innovative and ambitious
Mar 4: Project proposal posted on line at team project website.
All projects need to be approved by Prof. Allen
The projects will be presented by team members in class on Thursday,
Apr. 29, and the final project report will be due a week later on May
6. Guidelines are below.
Project Report and Presentation Guidelines
Some Potential Project Ideas:
Using our Leica HDS-3000 Scanner, scan an outdoor object on the Columbia
Campus (e.g a building)
and create a solid model with registered 2-D
Using our Leica HDS-3000 Scanner, scan an indoor scene on the Columbia
Campus (e.g. inside of Low Library) and create a solid model with
automatically registered 2-D imagery. Then you can do a live
``walkthrough'' of the environment. Check out the
at UNC which also includes an informative paper
"Real-Time Rendering of Real World Environments" by David K. McAllister, Lars Nyland, Voicu Popescu, Anselmo Lastra, Chris McCue
Scan a famous statue or large art object and build a viewable, texture
mapped model of it. Several notable sculptures are displayed on the
Morningside campus. Among them are Daniel Chester French's Alma Mater,
on the steps of Low Memorial Library; Three-Way Piece: Points by Henry
Moore, on Revson Plaza, near Jerome L. Greene Hall; Bellerophon Taming
Pegasus by Jacques Lipchitz, on the facade of Jerome L. Greene Hall; a
cast of Auguste Rodin's Thinker, on the lawn of Philosophy Hall; The
Great God Pan by George Grey Barnard, on the lawn of Lewisohn Hall;
Thomas Jefferson, in front of the Journalism Building, and Alexander
Hamilton, in front of Hamilton Hall, both by William Ordway Partridge;
and the Columbia Lion between Uris and Chemistry.
Here is an example of a Thinker model built in a previous semester:
Check out the
Michaelangelo Project and the
Pieta Project for details.
Implement a version of the
Desktop 3D Photography algorithm by J. Bouguet and P. Perona.
This allows you to do 3D scanning without expensive hardware setups.
Another approach to indoor scene modeling using range and image data
can be found at
Yizhou Yu's research page.
3D Vision and Virtual People. Scan a classmate or youself and build a
working 3-D texture mapped model of a human. Now add animation to the
model. A reference is
Virtual People: Capturing human models to populate virtual worlds by
Adrian Hilton, Daniel Beresford, Thomas Gentils, Raymond Smith and Wei Sun, IEEE Computer Animation 1999. A paper link is at the bottom of
