Example Equirectangular To Pinhole

Jump to navigationJump to search

Equirectangular images encode a full 360 view inside a rectangular image. This creates a highly distorted view, which can be visually displeasing and can't be processed directly by computer vision algorithms. Part of the view can be rendered inside a synthetic pinhole camera. The synthetic view could then be feed to fiducial detection algorithms, SFM, ... etc. This example shows to generate the synthetic pinhole camera view at an arbtirary orientation and intrinsic parameters.

 * specify the projection the camera model needs to be configured and the orientation of the view needs to bet set.
