My problem is about tangent plane. I have an image (m by n). I obtain surface normal vector using machine learning methods. Then i would like to obtain tangent plane for this surface normal.

To imagine my problem, you can look this paper; Surface Normals in the Wild. In this paper, authors find surface normal and draw/find virtual tangent plane around this point (Figure 4 in above paper).

For this problem, i have really no idea. Any tips or starter idea will be acceptable.

Thank you

  • $\begingroup$ @Noah Witherspoon, i will embed an image into this tangent plane. (So it will look like so natural) $\endgroup$ – BlackCode Mar 9 '18 at 4:39
  • $\begingroup$ @user1118321, i will look and test that question immediately. I hope it will work. I will feedback about it. Thanks $\endgroup$ – BlackCode Mar 9 '18 at 4:41
