Dear colleagues:

Few days ago, I posted a message asking information or pointers to pan/tilt
technique. Here is the summary of the responses. I'd like to express my
gratitide to those individuals who spent their precious time to respond to
my request:

Gideon Ariel
Mikko Virmavirta
Teruo NOMURA
Joachim Wolf
Darren Dutto

Here is the original message:

Here are the information I've got so far:

Stivers, K.A., Ariel, G.B., Vorobiev, A., Penny, M.A., Gouskov, A., Yakunin,
N. (1993). Photogrammetric transformation with panning. In Proceedings of
XIVth ISB Cpngress.
(This article is available at
http://www.apas.com/InetPub/articles/Default.htm)

Arndt, Brüggemann, Virmavirta & Komi (1995) Techniques used by olympic ski
jumpers in the transition from take-off to early flight. Journal of Applied
Biomechanics 11, 224 - 237.

Takamatsu,J., Ae,M., and Fujii,N. (1997). A DLT procedure using pan and tilt
cameras for large measurement volumes in three-dimensional videography.

Wolf, J. (1992). Ein deterministisches Modell zur Leistungsdiagnose im
alpinen Skirennlauf. Unpublished doctoral dissertation, Köln/Germany. (in
German)

All the replies are compiled and attached to this message.

Besides, I just updated my DLT page
(http://www.cs.bsu.edu/~ykwon/kwon3d/dlt/dlt.htm) with additional
information. You may find some helpful information here.

Thanks!

>From Gideon Ariel (ariel1@ix.netcom.com):

I did present in France at the 3D conference about the Panning system.

I Scanned the article and put it in the following URL:
http://www.apas.com/InetPub/articles/Default.htm
You can see the Panning one. There is a one which has more detail but I
cannot find it yet. I am looking. Please let me know if you were able to
get to the URL.

>From Darren Dutto (duttod@ucs.orst.edu):

My advisor, Gerry Smith, has been working on a panning algorithm to
compute 3-d coordinates, using the DLT method. You may want to contact
him directly for discussion on the precise methods that he is using.

His e-mail address: smithg@ccmail.orst.edu.

Hope this helps.

>From Mikko Virmavirta (virmavir@pallo.jyu.fi):

We filmed ski jumping with pan/tilt technique in Lillehammer Olympics
1994. There is nothing revolutionary in this paper, but for example
the reference of Drenk might be interesting.

Please check a article as follow;

>From Joachim Wolf (jo.wolf@osp-stg.s.shuttle.de):

In the proceedings of the XIII International Symposium on
Biomechanics in Sports 1995 (Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada)
you find a short overview of historical aspects and current
trends in cinematography.
I developed a method for free panning/tilting and zooming
in 1992. The detailed discription is given in my doctoral
thesis (german language):

Leistungsdiagnose im alpinen Skirennlauf. Köln/Germany, 1992
