Building Rome in a Day with Photosynth

Remeber Photosynth(video), the Microsoft Research software that turned hundreds of Flickr images of one building into a 3D view? They have, together with researchers from the University of Washington, Cornell, improved the software to a point where they can model the city Rome out of 150,000 photos from Flickr in less than 21h.

More videos and details are available from the project website, http://grail.cs.washington.edu/rome/.

The paper, “Building Rome in a Day” by Sameer Agarwal, Noah Snavely, Ian Simon, Steven M. Seitz, and Richard Szeliski, was presented at the International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV 2009) on September 30th.
