EYESCAN - A High Resolution Digital Panoramic Camera
A digital panoramic camera system is introduced consisting of a CCD line scanner and a high precision turntable. This combination allows the use of such a digital imaging systems for photogrammetric, robot vision, artistic and other applications. Additionally, these images with a reduced resolution or parts of it can be used for internet applications. Typical fields of application are photogrammetry in architecture, digital archiving of cultural objects and virtual reality. The imaging geometry causes panoramic distortions, therefore the images must be transformed into plane coordinate systems in order to work with them. Basic equations are given for these projections.
