In computer vision Photo-consistency determines whether a given voxel is occupied. A voxel is considered to be photo consistent when its color appears to be similar to all the cameras that can see it.[1] Most voxel coloring or space carving techniques require using photo consistency as a check condition in Image-based modeling and rendering applications.
