This paper deals with automatic Single View Reconstruction (SVR) of multi-planar scenes characterized by a profusion of straight lines and mutually orthogonal line-pairs. We provide a new shape-from-X constraint based on this regularity of angles between line-pairs in man- made scenes. First, we show how the presence of such regular angles can be used for 2D rectification of an image of a plane. Further, we pro- pose an automatic SVR method assuming there are enough orthogonal line-pairs available on each plane. This angle regularity is only imposed on physically intersecting line-pairs, making it a local constraint. Unlike earlier literature, our approach does not make restrictive assumptions about the orientation of the planes or the camera and works for both in- door and outdoor scenes. Results are shown on challenging images which would be difficult to reconstruct for existing automatic SVR algorithms.
