Fisher Yu will present his research seminar/general exam on Tuesday May 14 at 2PM in 
Room 402. The members of his committee are: Tom Funkhouser (advisor), Szymon 
Rusinkiewicz, and Adam Finkelstein. Everyone is invited to attend his talk and those 
faculty wishing to remain for the oral exam following are welcome to do so. His abstract 
and reading list follow below. 

City scale reconstruction is gaining more and more attention these years driven by its popularity in consumer market. It can help people get familiar with a new place without physically being there. Nowadays, people can view the 3D city models from aerial view or check the panorama images of the street. However, although the street level virtual scene can give the users an immersed experience in the virtual environment, the technology to build large scale detailed 3D textured models is still not mature enough for the customers. In this project, we make use of both laser range scanning and images from Google Street View project to recover the 3D shapes and their texture by combining the sparse shape information of the range scans and detailed texture information of the images. As we are working towards the goal, there are mainly three problems we need to solve, namely, adjusting pose estimation, increase the resolution of the scans, and fill the holes in the regions the scanners failed to reach. To adjust the pose estimation, we build a framework to optimize the laser and image poses together. Also, we can optimize the scan point positions and their subdivided mesh by considering both photo consistency and scan measurement. Our methods can now work on a number of sample environments.
