Title: Generating three-dimensional models of objects defined by two-dimensional image data

Abstract: A three-dimensional model of an object can be generated using a computer system by identifying reference points in two or more 2D representations of the object to be modeled, and deriving 3D positional data based on an application of an initial estimation model to the identified reference points. A texture-mapped version of the 3D model can be generated by mapping texture information from the 2D representations onto the derived 3D positional data.
