    608608-''' 3D calibration''': 3D projection is handled by the options in '''[calib_type]''' '3D_lin' or '3D_quad' (if non-linear distortion is significant). By default, the set of calibration points is assumed to be contained in a single plane ''z''=0. For a correct determination of the 3D features, the normal to this plane must be tilted with respect to the line of view. Otherwise this problem of indetermination can be resolved by using a set of (typically 5-10) calibrations images using a plane grid with different tilting angles (for precision the grid must cover a large area of the view field). On each image, get calibration points with the tool '''[!Tools/Detect grid]''', introducing the appropriate grid mesh. Do not fill info on ''z'' coordinates. Store the points each time (without applying calibration at this stage), which fills the list [!ListCoordFiles] of file names. Then introduce a last grid image which will be considered as defining the orientation of the ''z'' axis, perpendicular to the grid. Detect points on this last image, but instead of storing them, apply the calibration with the option 3D_linear or 3D_quadr. A non-zero ''z'' position of this grid can be introduced by a z translation performed with '''[!Tools/Translate points]'''.

    610 -''' Intrinsic parameters''': the previous procedure first determines the extrinsic parameters which characterize the camera optics (focal lengths and nonlinear deformation parameter). Then the extrinsic parameters, translation and rotation of the camera with respect to the reference grid, are determined on the last grid image. If the same optics is used in a new experiment, it is possible to skip the multiplane detection, importing the intrinsic parameters from a previous <!ImaDoc> file by the menu bar tool '''[!Import/Intrinsic]''' parameters, then applying the calibration with the option '3D_extrinsic' with the reference grid image only.

     610-''' Intrinsic parameters''': the previous procedure first determines the extrinsic parameters which characterize the camera optics (focal lengths and nonlinear deformation parameter). Then the extrinsic parameters, translation and rotation of the camera with respect to the reference grid, are determined on the last grid image. If the same optics is used in a new experiment, it is possible to skip the multiplane detection, importing the intrinsic parameters from a previous <!ImaDoc> file by the menu bar tool '''[Import.../Intrinsic parameters]''', then applying the calibration with the option '3D_extrinsic' with the reference grid image only.

     612- ''' Import features''': by the menu bar tool '''[Import...]''', you can choose to import different data from a previous <!ImaDoc> file.
     613* '''Calibration points''': imports the calibration poins of a previous grid saved as a <!ImaDoc> file, the points and their coordinates will then appear in '''uvmat''' and '''geometry_calib'''.
     614* '''Intrinsic parameters''': as explained above it imports the intrinsic parameters from a previous grid saved as a <!ImaDoc> file. The parameters will appear in '''geometry_calib'''.
     615* '''All''': imports the calibration points and the intrinsic parameters from a <!ImaDoc> file. We can see them in '''geometry_calib'''.
     616* '''Grid file''':imports the <!ImaDoc> file in '''Point Lists''' in '''geometry_calib''' but none of the data appears in the coordinate table or the intrinsic parameter frame.

    617 Deducing the physical coordinates from image coordinates requires information on the section plane. The default assumption is that the objects in the image are in the plane used for calibration, but uvmat can handle volume scanning by a laser plane. A set of section planes can be defined by their origin positions and rotation angle vectors. Theses planes are labelled by a ''z index'', assumed to be the frame index j (case of volume scan), or the index i modulo the number of slices !NbSlice (case of 'multilevel' scan). These settings are stored in the xml file <!ImaDoc> as part of the section <!GeometryCalib> and can be edited from '''uvmat.fig''' with the menu bar command '''[Tools/set slice]'''. A dialog box '''set_slices''' appears for entering the first and last section plane positions ''z'', as well as the number of slices and the option 'volume_scan' ('multilevel' otherwise). In the absence of 3D scan put twice the same value for first and last z.  Finally a tilt angle of the laser sheet, around the ''x'' and ''y'' axis, can be introduced, with a possible angular scanning from first to last section planes. After introduction of the plane position information, the z-index is displayed in the frame '''[!FileIndices]''' of '''uvmat.fig'''. The local ''z'' position of the mouse pointer, assumed to lay on the current section plane, is then displayed in '''[text_display]'''.

    619623-''' Refraction effect:''' refraction effect can be accounted for if calibration was done in air by selecting the check box refraction, and introducing the water height (assumed at ''z''=cte) and refraction index. The apparent distance reduction for objects below the water height will be then taken into account.
