I started to re-implement (that is: copy) automatic panorama creation like described here. Instead of the patented SIFT however, I am using the free(?) SURF.

For now, I rely on OpenCV for almost all of the common algorithms, which appears to work very well. Nevertheless cvFindHomography showed to be as tricky as usual - at least in version 1.1.

The image below shows my first results. Obviously, there is still a lot to do but i am already quite surprised by the high speed and good quality.
