Creating Virtual Walkthrough Environment from Vertical Panoramic Mosaic
In this paper, a novel algorithm for creating virtual indoor environments is described. First, a panoramic mosaic is generated from a series of photos taken with a camera rotates along a horizontalaxis. Then, from the panoramic mosaic image, a non-fixed viewing point virtual walkthrough system can be created by defining manually the corners in the vertical panoramic mosaic. The side ratio of the virtual walkthroughsystem can be obtained from the panningangle subsequently. By applying the cylindrical projection technique, the texture for the sides of the virtual walkthrough environment can be projected in a more realistic way. Real images have been used to verify our proposed algorithm with satisfactory results.
