3D structure recovery from a collection of 2D images requires the estimation of the camera locations and orientations, i.e. the camera motion. For large, irregular collections of images, existing methods for the location estimation part, which can be formulated as the inverse problem of estimating n locations t1, t2, ..., tn in ℝ3 from noisy measurements of a subset of the pairwise directions ti-tj/∥ti-tj∥, are sensitive to outliers in direction measurements. In this paper, we firstly provide a… Expand
