Abstract: The paper describes an interactive approach to first reconstruct and then visualise three-dimensional image models created from a pair of two-dimensional digital colour images. The method integrates an interactive output data manipulation capability of JView, Java based API engineered by US Air Force with newly developed more accurate procedure of recreating texture mapped 3D-models using a stereo triangulation technique. Though several procedures have been proposed in literature on how to generate 3D models by recovering image depth, they are limited in predicting an accurate pixel matching between image correspondences. Furthermore, majority of papers lack depicting reconstructed 3D-image geometry to show how well their techniques have been able to recover scene depth at every pixel. We have employed a region-based block matching methodology for colour image analysis. The reconstructed image models can be viewed and manoeuvered on a computer screen by mouse buttons. This interactive viewing capability is an aid to visualisation process and facilitates algorithm designers to test their codes.
