PhotoSketch
Ernest Flagg designed this gable, dark red-brick house with hip-roofed dormer windows, and a cupola over its elevator tower in 1914. This phototextured model is created using the PhotoSketch plugin for Google Sketchup. PhotoSketch is an urban 3D modeling plugin for Google SketchUp. PhotoSketch is designed to make it easy for SketchUp users to build phototextured 3D models of buildings directly from photographs. We simplify the 3D modeling workflow by leveraging the SketchUp push-pull interface with computer vision and photogrammetry techniques. The PhotoSketch plugin merges the benefits of automatic feature extraction, camera pose recovery, an intuitive sketching interface, and advanced texture mapping with occlusion detection to produce lightweight photorealistic 3D models of buildings. These models typically consist of a few hundred polygons each, which makes them well-suited for use in high-performance visualization, online gaming, and web-based applications such as Google Earth. #3D_modeling #Brainstorm_Technology #Google_SketchUp #match_photo #multiview_geometry #photogrammetry #PhotoSketch #structure_from_motion #texture_mapping #Town_House #urban_modeling
