IARPA Picks Winners of Multi-View Stereo 3D Mapping Tilt

IARPA_logo_EMThe Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity has announced the winners of a competition that called on participants to share concepts for the development of multi-view stereo three-dimensional mapping.

Participants demonstrated their ideas before the IARPA community during a workshop in Washington D.C. on Wednesday, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence said Thursday.

Winners developed algorithms meant to produce 3D mappings from satellite images and open sourced systems were launched at the event for public release.

The competition consisted of two segments such as the Explorer Challenge, where solvers were introduced to the data-set and to prepare for the Master Challenge, where participants designed a mapping algorithm based on their Explorer Challenge concepts.
