    Abstract: A method of determining macrotexture of an object is presented which includes obtaining a plurality of stereo images from an object, generating a local coordinate system for each image, detecting one or more local keypoints each having a local coordinate, generating a global coordinate system based on a plurality of ground control points (GCPs) with apriori position knowledge of each of the plurality of GCPs, transforming the one or more local keypoints in each image to one or more global keypoints each having a global coordinate, generating a sparse point cloud based on the one or more global keypoints, reconstructing a 3D dense point cloud of the object based on neighboring pixels of each of the one or more local keypoints and calculating the global coordinates of each pixel of the 3D dense point cloud, and obtaining the macrotexture based on the reconstructed 3D dense point cloud of the object.
