A Public System for Image Based 3D Model Generation

David Tingdahl, Luc J. Van Gool


Abstract This paper presents a service that creates complete and realistic 3D models out of a set of photographs taken with a consumer camera. In contrast to other systems which produce sparse point clouds or individual depth maps, our system automatically generates textured and dense models that require little or no post-processing. Our reconstruction pipeline features automatic camera parameter retrieval from the web and intelligent view selection. This ARC3D system is available as a public, free-to-use web service ( Results are made available both as a full-resolution model and as a low-resolution for web browser viewing using WebGL.
