    A Method for Rectifying Inclination of Panoramic Images



    We propose a method for transforming inclined panoramic images into upright posture as if they were captured up straight. The method rectifies images automatically using neither additional information nor external instructions, while it enables panoramic images of both indoor and outdoor scenes to stand upright robustly. It helps unskilled people to make high quality panoramic images used for widespread applications including city navigation and real estate easier.
