Stereocalibration coordinate origin question

Hi,

I have a question about the origin of the stereocalibration. I have a pair of cameras calibrated using cv::stereocalibrate. I wish to recover 3D physical coordinates of specific points in the image using cv::triangulatepoints.

The question is where is the origin and the axis orientation of the recovered (X,Y,Z) physical coordiantes? I didn't find information in opencv documentation.

In "Learning OpenCV: Computer Vision with the Opencv" by Gary Bradski, Adrian Kaehler, the authors defined the origin to be center of projection of the left camera, with X positive towards right camera, Y downwards and Z away from camera. Is this right?

Yes this is true and it is also the general rule of applying stereo calibration. Take a look at the following image, which specifies a universal set of parameters that everyone uses for calibration.

What about a top/bottom stereo-calibration?

I am not aware of top/bottom calibration ... could you direct me to some explanation of what it would do differently from a typical stereo calibration?

never mind, I found the answer in the documentation under cv::stereorectify. Thanks!

What if the plane is perpendicular on the images planes(in real life)?How do i find a connection?I mean how can i translate the camera coordinate system into a new point ?
