CityNeRF: Building Neural Radiance Field (NeRF) at City Scale

Neural radiance field (NeRF) has demonstrated exceptional capacity in learning to signify 3D objects and scenes from illustrations or photos. Having said that, NeRF is only used in managed environments with a “single-scale” environment. A modern paper on arXiv.org makes the first attempt to make NeRF beneath city-scale.

The researchers suggest a multi-stage progressive learning paradigm. The training dataset is partitioned into a predefined range of scales in accordance to the digital camera distances. The established is gradually expanded by a single closer scale at every single stage. That way, the hierarchy of representations is uncovered robustly throughout all scales. The model is developed by appending an additional block for each stage. The colour and density residuals are predicted amongst successive levels to focus on the emerging details in closer views.

Experimental outcomes exhibit that the technique
