Summary of paper:
The paper describes a novel method to accurately estimate the global position of a moving car using an omnidirectional camera and a 3D city models. The camera is oriented upwards to capture images of the immediate skyline, which is generally unique and serves as a fingerprint for a specific location in a city. The goal is to estimate global position by matching skylines extracted from omni-directional images to skyline segments from coarse 3D city models.
