6 March 2014 Measuring perceived depth in natural images and study of its relation with monocular and binocular depth cues

The perception of depth in images and video sequences is based on different depth cues. Studies have considered depth perception threshold as a function of viewing distance (Cutting and Vishton, 1995), the combination of different monocular depth cues and their quantitative relation with binocular depth cues and their different possible type of interactions (Landy, l995). But these studies only consider artificial stimuli and none of them attempts to provide a quantitative contribution of monocular and binocular depth cues compared to each other in the specific context of natural images. This study targets this particular application case. The evaluation of the strength of different depth cues compared to each other using a carefully designed image database to cover as much as possible different combinations of monocular (linear perspective, texture gradient, relative size and defocus blur) and binocular depth cues. The 200 images were evaluated in two distinct subjective experiments to evaluate separately perceived depth and different monocular depth cues. The methodology and the description of the definition of the different scales will be detailed. The image database (DC3Dimg) is also released for the scientific community.
