Method and system for determining a volume of an object from twodimensional images
Abstract
The invention provides a method and a computer program stored in a tangible medium for automatically determining a volume of threedimensional objects represented in twodimensional images, by acquiring at two least twodimensional digitized images, by analyzing the twodimensional images to identify reference points and geometric patterns, by determining distances between the reference points and the component objects utilizing reference data provided for the threedimensional object, and by calculating a volume for the threedimensional object.
