This work portrays several ways in which a pair (triplet) of completely independent 2D data sets, such as regular 2D color pictures or Height fields, are merged into one 3D model, creating an Ortho-picture. The Ortho-picture will look like the first input set from one view and will identify with the second set from an orthogonal view. While techniques to reconstruct 3D geometry from several 2D data sets of the same 2D models are well known, herein we strive to merge pairs of completely independent 2D input data sets. The end result of this effort is a regular 3D model that is automatically synthesized from a pair of two completely independent pictures or 3D objects.
