Entire Cities Recreated Using Thousands of Flickr Photos

October 4th, 2009 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

An amazing project by the University of Washington’s graphics and imaging laboratory (GRAIL).  I imagine that in future this could be combined with augmented reality apps for Iphone or other mobile devices to visualize cities and places through the perspective of visitors / web users.

This is what the “” writes about it:

“A group of researchers with University of Washington’s graphics and imaging laboratory (GRAIL) wanted to see if they could build a piece of software that would search the web for images of a particular place and recreate that place in 3D in under a day.
They succeeded, and the team, lead by Sameer Agarwal, created a simulation of Rome using 150,000 images harvested from photo-sharing website Flickr, and build a virtual model within a day. The team also tested the software on the Croatian city of Dubrovnic and were able to recreate the entire old city, including all the buildings and streets, within 22 hours. The principle isn’t new – the team previously developed tools which can create 3D models from a collection of photos, which subsequently evolved into Microsoft’s Photosynth. But while that technology was good, “Using the existing system it would have taken years to recreate a whole city,” Agarwal told NewScientist.”

This Blog is discontinued…

We're no longer generating content for Cityclouds. Consider it an archive for great things a group of Berliners found on the web and elsewhere from 2008 to 2012. The future is bright...
