It is designed to provide an easy access to the classical problem solvers in Multiple View Geometry and solve them accurately.. TheiaSfM (C/C++ code, BSD lic) The goal of this library is to provide researchers with an out of the box tool for multi-view reconstruction that can be easily extended. Many common algorithms for pose, feature detection and description, matching, and reconstruction have been implemented.
