Xian Xiao, ChangSheng Xu, JinQiao Wang, Min Xu
2011 Proceedings of the 2011 joint ACM workshop on Human gesture and behavior understanding - J-HGBU '11  
For each recognized query image, a 3D landmark model and a 3D landmark texture model are presented as a query result. Experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of our proposed approach.  ...  In online module, query images are recognized by the 3D landmark recognizers using a 2D to 3D matching approach.  ...  In this paper, we attempt to improve the experience of landmark retrieval by two steps: 1) building 3D landmark models using landmark images collected from the web; 2) retrieving a 3D landmark model using  ...
