image_points_to_world_plane — Transform image points into the plane z=0 of a world coordinate system.
The operator image_points_to_world_plane transforms image points which are given in Rows and Cols into the plane z=0 in a world coordinate system and returns their 3D coordinates in X and Y. The world coordinate system is chosen by passing its 3D pose relative to the camera coordinate system in WorldPose. In CameraParam you must pass the internal camera parameters (see write_cam_par for the sequence of the parameters and the underlying camera model).
In many cases CameraParam and WorldPose are the result of calibrating the camera with the operator calibrate_cameras. See below for an example.
With the parameter Scale you can scale the resulting 3D coordinates. The parameter Scale must be specified as the ratio desired unit/original unit. The original unit is determined by the coordinates of the calibration object. If the original unit is meters (which is the case if you use the standard calibration plate), you can set the desired unit directly by selecting 'm', 'cm', 'mm' or 'um' for the parameter Scale.
Internally, the operator first computes the line of sight between the projection center and the image contour points in the camera coordinate system, taking into account the radial distortions. The line of sight is then transformed into the world coordinate system specified in WorldPose. By intersecting the plane z=0 with the line of sight the 3D coordinates X and Y are obtained.
It is recommended to use only those image points Rows and Cols, that lie within the calibrated image size. The mathematical model does only work well for image points, that lie within the calibration range.

image_points_to_world_plane returns 2 (H_MSG_TRUE) if all parameter values are correct. If necessary, an exception is raised.
