Chapter 10 Appendix 2: Camera geometry fundamentals - Pg. 355

. 10 . Appendix 2: Camera geometry fundamentals 10.1 Image geometry This book has focused on techniques of image processing that use intensity or colour values of pixels to enhance and analyse images. Other image techniques include information about the geometry of image acquisition. These techniques are studied in the computer vision area and are mainly applied to three-dimensional (3D) scene analysis (Trucco and Verri, 1998; Hartley and Zisserman, 2001). This appendix does not cover computer vision techniques, but gives an introduction to the fundamental concepts of the geometry of computer vision. It aims to complement the concepts in Chapter 1 by increasing the background knowledge of how camera geometry is mathematically modelled.
