“Rome in a Day” in CACM

The latest issue of Communications of the ACM includes UW CSE’s “Building Rome in a Day” paper – work recently demonstrated by Intel CEO Paul Otellini at the Intel Developer Conference.

From the abstract:  “We present a system that can reconstruct 3D geometry from large, unorganized collections of photographs. Our experimental results demonstrate that it is possible to reconstruct city-scale image collections with more than a hundred thousand images in less than a day.”
