Shadow modelling based upon Rayleigh scattering and Mie theory

Gu, Lin; Robles-Kelly, Antonio


In this paper, we present a method to model shadows in outdoor scenes. Here, we note that the shadow areas correspond to the diffuse skylight which arises from the scattering of the sunlight by particles in the atmosphere. This yields a treatment in which shadows in the image can be viewed as a linear combination of scattered light obeying Rayleigh scattering and Mie theory. This allows for the computation of a ratio which permits casting the problem of recovering the shadowed areas in the...[Show more]
