Introduction

We propose an imperative sparse-MVS leaderboard and call for the community’s attention on the general sparse MVS problem with large range of baseline angles. The proposed sparse-MVS leader-board is built on the large-scale DTU dataset and Tanks-and-Temples dataset with sparsely sampled camera views. The sparse-MVS setting selects one view from every n consecutive camera index, i.e., {1, n + 1, 2n + 1,...}, where n is termed as Sparsity positively related with baseline angle θ. The poor performance of the state-of-the-art MVS algorithms on the proposed leader-board demonstrates the necessity of further effort and attention from the community on the achieving MVS with various degrees of sparsity.
