Rother and Carlsson introduced the Direct Reference Plane method for obtaining a projective reconstruction from a multi-view system, presuming the availability of a planar reference quadrangle in each view. In this method feature points and camera centres are obtained simultaneously by solving a system of homogeneous linear equations. Each feature-camera visibility pair corresponds to two equations in this system. In this paper we derive a count criterion for characterizing sufficient visibility, yielding a system of linearly independent equations that determines feature points and camera centres. Finally we discuss some principles to extend the configuration of feature points and camera centres while maintaining sufficient visibility.
