This research aimed to develop an algorithm that estimates the camera position in space from which an image was created using computer vision techniques. The implemented algorithm involves 3 major steps: defining a distinct combination of features of the object, recognizing the object with the distinct features, and calculating camera position using the mapping information between the projected 2-D image and the 3-D object. A generalized approach and a specific case study of the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris are discussed in detail.
