How much data do we need to describe a location? We explore this question in the context of 3D scene reconstructions created from running structure from motion on large Internet photo collections, where reconstructions can contain many millions of 3D points. We consider several methods for computing much more compact representations of such reconstructions for the task of location recognition, with the goal of maintaining good performance with very small models. In particular, we introduce a… CONTINUE READING
