what's the coordinate relations between disparity image and the rectified images(the left or right view)?

I use the following block-matching functions,and the parametes are as follow.

//computer stereo correspondence using the semi-global 
//block matching algorithm
Ptr<StereoSGBM> sgbm = StereoSGBM::create(0, 16, 3);
int numberOfDisparities = ((imageSize.width / 8) + 15) & -16;
int sgbmWinSize = 9;
int cn = gviewLeft.channels();
sgbm->setP1(8 * cn*sgbmWinSize*sgbmWinSize);
sgbm->setP2(32 * cn*sgbmWinSize*sgbmWinSize);

And I get a diaparity image successfuly image description

And the stereo rectification result is as follow image description

I want to re-construction the 3d surface. But which pixel in the original images corresponds to the disparity values whose coordinates are (x,y)?

to express my question clearly, let me say something more about it. if I get a disparity value whose corrdinates are(x,y)(I uploaded a simple illustration to express this intuitively), how can I find the corresponding pixel in the stereo rectified images(the left or the right).

Disparity map is calculated w.r.t left image, i.e the (x,y) pixel in disparity map corresponds the (x,y) pixel in left image. On the other hand, the pixel in the right which corresponds to that pixel is not accessible in OpenCV's Semi Global Block Matching algorithm as far as I know. You need to go deeper in the source code.

thx. I campared the two images. it seems that you are right.
