Follow-up (#1) for Camera Calibration in POV-Ray (Porro-Koppe Principle in Virtual)

Ok, so projecting an image isn’t hard at all in POV-Ray.  I’m not sure what I was thinking.  In my first post on camera calibration in POV-Ray, I suggested that we could analytically solve for lens and topographic distortion in POV-Ray.  I haven’t gotten far as I don’t have a work project to take advantage of this yet, but I projected a false color infrared … Continue reading Follow-up (#1) for Camera Calibration in POV-Ray (Porro-Koppe Principle in Virtual)

19th Century Camera Calibration for Remote Sensing in PovRay (or Porro-Koppe Principle in Virtual)

A complete analytic solution for geometric distortions in remote sensing (ahem, ignoring atmosphere, of course) Ok, so here is another thought experiment. This time, it will take a few months before I have time to write the code for this, but maybe the thought experiment will inspire someone. A major problem of photogrammetry, remote sensing, and computer vision is correction of lens distortion. Thanks to … Continue reading 19th Century Camera Calibration for Remote Sensing in PovRay (or Porro-Koppe Principle in Virtual)
