Abstract : The paper describes a heuristic scence description program. This program accepts as input a scene represented as a line drawing. Based on a set of known object models the program attempts to determine the identify and location of each object viewed. The most significant feature of the program is its ability to deal with imperfect input data. Also presented are some preliminary results concerning constraints in projections of planar-faced solids. It is shown that for a restricted class of projections, 4 points located in 3-space in addition to complete monocular information are sufficient to specify all the visible point locations precisely.
