Overview
Image overlay, a visualization method, combines 3D computer generated images with the user's view of the real world. In contrast with other image overlay systems, this system provides the observer with an unimpeded view of the actual environment, enhanced with 3D stereo images. The system has the ability to track changes in the observer's view point and transform the computer images to appear in the appropriate location.
