Extracting geometry from paintings

The excellent Digital Urban blog features an attempt at extracting 3D geometry from a painting So using a section of Visscher's panoramic view of London circa 1616. In this, lines of perspective were put in and the main features were traced around. The results, found in the YouTube clip below, are very impressive.

Creating a 3D flythough or indeed a full 3D model from a traditional painting definitely showcases a lot of potential in exploration. This was created using the photomodelling Canoma package.
