Imaging Geometry

Central Projection

Vector notation:

where and are 3-vectors, with .

Here central projection is represented in the coordinate frame attached to the camera. Generally, there is not direct access to this camera coordinate frame. Instead, we need to determine the mapping from a world coordinate frame to an image coordinate system (see next slide).
