Architectural Image-Based-Modeling

Architectural Image-Based-Modeling is an international collaborative effort to create 3D models from photographic representations and other historic data. Intended as a methodological and theoretical portal, Architectural IBM includes case studies, tutorials, scholarly articles, and a gallery of images, video and three-dimensional models. F. Remondino, et al.'s "The 3D-ARCH Project" (originally published in the International Archives of Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Spatial Information Sciences v. 38) provides a synopsis of a four-year project to integrate 3D models and GIS data sets for the purposes of virtually reconstructing complex medieval architectural forms.

The new site allows students, teachers, and researchers to contribute 2D and 3D building representations generated from photographs.
