Stereo optical image of Cape Town

Stereo optical imaging is a technique that displays images in three dimensions (3D). It is increasingly becoming an important application in heritage preservation, archaeology, urban planning and city development. In remote sensing, 3D images are created by taking satellite images of the same area from different angles and fusing them to create an anaglyph image. To view the images in three dimensions, 3D anaglyph glasses are used.
