This article depicts an integrated system capable of generating virtual stereo scenes, reconstructing a threedimensional map of distances, and calculating the accuracy of the results obtained. This tool is particularly useful for verifying the validity of distance reconstruction techniques, and is robust enough to use in a wide variety of scenarios since it avoids the need for an imagecapture system in laboratory simulations. The importance of the distance reconstruction problem lies in the

The system is based on the VRML standard for three-dimensional geometric scene representation, on OpenGL for rendering virtual scenes, and on the TRW algorithm for the problem of three-dimensional reconstruction.
