Call for Papers

Workshop on 3D Computer Vision in the Built Environment
in association with the International Conference on 3D Vision (3DV) 2014



Buildings and other infrastructure provide a limited, yet challenging, 
domain for 3D computer vision techniques. Terrestrial laser scanners, 
RGB-D cameras, mobile scanning robots, and micro air vehicles (MAVs) are 
just some of the platforms that are being used to capture and model the 
built environment. Such 3D models have enormous potential for aiding 
practitioners in a wide variety of fields, ranging from architecture, 
engineering, and construction (AEC) to post-disaster search and rescue. 
This workshop will explore the state of the art in techniques that use 
3D imaging for modeling, analyzing, and understanding the built environment.
