Image and Image Plane

  • Image Plane is the universe where the image lives

\[ \text{image}\subset\text{image plane} \]

  • The Image Plane is a 2D World
  • The Image Plane exists in a 3D World


  • Preimage is the set of points in 3D projecting onto the Image Plane
  • What is projection?
    • draw a line through the 3D point and origo (the pinhole)
    • the projection is the intersection with the image plane.
  • Thus
    • \(\text{preimage} = \mathsf{span}(\text{image})\)
    • \(\text{image} = \text{preimage}\cap\text{image plane}\)


  • Coimage is the set of points (space) orthogonal on the preimage

\[\text{coimage} = \text{preimage}^\bot\]

\[\text{preimage} = \text{coimage}^\bot\]
