Crowd Sourced Abraham Lincoln

3D model description

Crowd Sourcing flickr images to create 3D files.

This is a working proof of concept.

Long story short...
I didn't go to Washington DC to 3D scan the Lincoln Memorial.
Instead, I scanned flickr for all related images to "Lincoln Memorial statue" and downloaded the originals.
By uploading it to 123d catch, I was able to receive a 3D model of Abraham Lincoln's Face.

Here are my plans for a fully automated 3D generator based off of crowd sourced photography.

  1. Parse Flickr with Search phrase
  2. Download first 100 photos
  3. Upload to 123d Catch
  4. Download 3D model

Simple enough.
Hopefully google can integrate this into their search engine in a few years (or months).
