24. Stereograms

Autumn 2003

Read the project description carefully. Questions and comments can be sent to

General information

The purpose of the project work is to get hands on experience and deeper understanding on one specific area of the course. At the same time you will be forced to think on some of the more general issues that are confronted every time a visualization method is developed or used.

To complete the project you will probably need information that has not been discussed on the lectures or in the exercises. Most of the time relevant information can be easily found on the web, course books or in some cases references to articles will be given. If you have problems finding information on the subject please contact the lecturer or the assistant for hints and guidance.

The project work will be valid for one year after the original deadline.

General requirements

specific requirements

The goal of this project is to create different stereograms e.g. images that use stereovision to create an experience of depth without any special hardware.

To complete the report should show an example of at least the following

  1. Stereo photograph
  2. Line drawing that has the images for both eyes in the same image
  3. ASCII stereogram
  4. Randomdot single image stereogram
  5. Texture/pattern based single image stereogram
  6. Animated version of 3 or 4.

The reports should explain how stereograms work, how they are viewed and how they are created. The source of all the stereograms should also be mentioned.
