Library Home || Full Table of Contents || Library Help
|A paper with Java illustrations: Given a two dimensional painting of a three dimensional object, you can use geometry to find the ideal viewing location--the position where the image appears most three dimensional. This site reviews that geometry (using Java Sketchpad applets) and solves the related problem: given a one dimensional painting of a two dimensional object, where is the ideal viewing location?|
