Depth Map Viewer

I am proud to announce the release of Depth Map Viewer, a website where you can visualize the quality of a depth map (corresponding to a reference image) by rotating the corresponding 3d scene along axis passing by the the center of the 3d scene and parallel to the height of the reference image. As a bonus, the animation can be saved as an animated gif. The depth map may come from anywhere as long as black means far and white means close. For example, the depth map may have been generated by Depth Map Automatic Generator 7 (DMAG7) and smoothed by Edge Preserving Smoothing 7 (EPS7) from a stereo pair taken by a stereo camera.

I was quite inspired by Depth Player for Android Lens Blur images when making Depth Map Viewer. Can't say I use any of the source code although the revelation that three.js was used for the rendering made my job much easier.

I would like to thank whoever is responsible for jsgif because that's how Wiggle Maker creates the animated gifs. Works like a charm.

Manual is available here: Depth Map Viewer manual.

Here's the video that shows Depth Map Viewer in its full glory:

Depth Map Viewer has been fully tested on Google Chrome.
