Walk-through Rendering from Images of Varying Altitude


WRIVA aims to develop software algorithm-based systems that can create photorealistic, navigable site models using a highly limited corpus of imagery to include ground level imagery, surveillance height imagery (traffic camera), UAV altitude imagery, and Satellite imagery.  Additionally, where imagery lacks metadata indicating geolocation or time of collection, WRIVA seeks to estimate these parameters using image features to incorporate them in site-modelling and other downstream algorithms. Many IC and DOD agencies require this capability to enhance safety while conducting activities where a rich corpus of imagery is unavailable to prepare operations, such as humanitarian and disaster relief (HADR).  Expanding site modelling capabilities would allow these activities to be conducted with reduced risk to personnel.
