Depth map extraction based on geometry
This paper presents a novel depth map generation method based on geometric information. Our method divides a 2d image into two parts-the foreground and the background. Through extracting the predominant lines and vanishing point of the background, the background depth map is determined. Then we use this depth map as a `scalar' to measure the depth value of the foreground object. Finally, the depth map of the foreground and the background are integrated into one depth map by a depth fusion algorithm.
