Abstract
In this paper, a new calculating method is given for determining object surface orientation based on two images by using spherical representation of a surface and the solution is gotten more easily than by using gradient space. Furthermore, the relationship of the solutions reveals that the true solution vectors and the extraneous solution vectors are symmetric with respect to the light source plane. The surface rebuilt by one set of solutions is the true object surface and the surface rebuilt by another set of solutions is a mirror image of true surface with respect to the light source plane. The methods of rebuilding surface shape from surface orientation are given respectively in an orthographic projection and a perspective projection. The methods mentioned above are proved by simulated calculation.
