Exporting to cultural heritage methods and tools used in
industrial areas, where the profits can justify high model-
ing costs, may only be a starting point for cultural heritage
modeling, but not a sustainable solution in sight of the eco-
nomics of this application.
A way to lower the costs is to automate the modeling
procedure. This work presents a robust procedure for the
automatic alignment of pairs of 3D views, the first problem
encountered in the inodeling pipeline.
Theresults of this paper, originally conceived to address
the costs issue of cultural heritage modeling, can be prof-
itably exploited also in other modeling applications.
