Image-Based Modeling and Rendering

The IBMR-Focus is thought as a starting point for Image-Based Modeling and Rendering resources. This site is non-commercial. Since the site is quite new any hint, comment, etc. is welcome.

June 2000: Since I'm not longer working on topics concerning Image-based Rendering I will not change this site any more.

Nov. 2002: When moving the page, I updated and added some links.

Introduction to Image-Based Rendering by Michael F. Cohen
