Picture of Estimation of dimensions for 3D modeling from plannar images
3D modeling is a common technique adopted in a wide range of areas (including industry, medicine, education, games and design).In particular regard to the 3D computer graphics, 3D modeling is a process of developing a mathematical representation (usually in terms of vertices and matrices) of the three-dimensional surface(s) of the subject of interest (usually refer to objects and by specialised software, e.g. AutoCAD, 3DS MAX, Maya, etc.). The precision of modeling is in part determined by the details of the dimensional information.

Although the demand for and the degree of precision in modeling may depend on the contexts/applications, dimensional precision influences the perception and conception of the viewer. Additionally, as part of the essential properties of object/space representation, dimension is one of the key parameters required in the modeling process and by the aforementioned specialised software.

As vision is vital to human activities, plannar images are commonly available in our environment as a source of information and/or as a form of record mainly for information purposes. Thus, in addition to the direct measurements for the subject of interest, dimensional data can also be acquired from the plannar images (in particular photographs) of the subject of interest via parametric measurements.

In this presentation, a technique of dimensional estimation is proposed based on the mathematical concept of geometry.
