Point Cloud Texture – Part 2

This is the second in a series explaining the use of Google Streetview to add texture to a point cloud.

In this video, the author improves the result of texturing a 3D mesh with a screenshot of Google Streetview, by estimating the focal length of the Google Streetview viewer, using the free VisualSFM Structure from Motion software.

This method is part of the work described in the paper:
B. Sirmacek, J. Lichtenauer, “A semi-automatic procedure for texturing of laser scanning point clouds with Google Streetview images”, ISPRS GEOSPATIAL WEEK CMRT 2015, France, 2015.
