Abstract

See full text

Technologies are described herein for providing user interfaces through which a user may interact with a top-down map of a reconstructed structure within a 3-D scene. An application provides one or more user interfaces allowing a user to select a camera pose, a reconstruction element, a point, or a group of points on the top-down map. The application then determines at least one representative photograph from the visual reconstruction based on the selection of the user, and the displays a preview of the representative photograph on the top-down map as a thumbnail image. The provided user interfaces may further allow the user to navigate to the representative photograph in the local-navigation display of the visual reconstruction.
