An automatic system for locating 3D points in a 2D image is very important step in 3-D image reconstruction. However, the question of whether the detected points in the image of a 3-D scene corresponds to an object point still merits further investigation. The aim of the research presented in this paper is to propose an image system capable of detecting image corners and then show the ones that correspond to polygonal object planes for a variety of types of subject. A review of the existing literature suggested that a two-camera approach based on uncalibrated images would offer the most flexible potential solution. The method is based on rectified images obtained from a pair of uncalibrated images utilizing the epipolar constraint, and is illustrated with images of several scenes captured using a digital camera..
