Crowd Sourcing flickr images to create 3D files.
This is a working proof of concept.
Long story short...
I didn't go to Washington DC to 3D scan the Lincoln Memorial.
Instead, I scanned flickr for all related images to "Lincoln Memorial statue" and downloaded the originals.
By uploading it to 123d catch, I was able to receive a 3D model of Abraham Lincoln's Face.
Here are my plans for a fully automated 3D generator based off of crowd sourced photography.
- Parse Flickr with Search phrase
- Download first 100 photos
- Upload to 123d Catch
- Download 3D model
Hopefully google can integrate this into their search engine in a few years (or months).
