As we saw before in certain cases the images
can be related by a homography. In those cases we call mosaic the
structure composed by the images and the homographies.
Choosing one of the images as a reference, we can visualize the mosaic
(schematically in figure 3
and real images in figure 4),
we call this visualization, planar visualization.

In case of panoramic views (i.e. the camera does only a rotation around
its optical center), if we have the Zoom parameter we can visualize the
mosaic using a cylindrical projection with the formula 17
