Abstract
We propose to design and implement algorithms for the remapping of scenes from one or more existing views. The routines to be developed will present realistic virtual views from any desired direction. Realism of the views increases with additional information about the cameras, scene and with the number of views. We show that realistic reprojections do not require multiple source views if given information about the camera that is typically available with imagery obtained from an airborne platform. Methods for presenting the optimal remapping given any level of information are presented. The methods working from the least information are also the fastest, and real-time processing of high resolution video data streams can easily be accomplished with small, lightweight systems.
