A method has been developed for the generation of a fused 3D model from multiple 2.5D data sources representing depth measurements. Efficiency gains occur because the fusion is performed in 2.5 D instead of 3D, thereby reducing its complexity tremendously. 
Advantages:
•  Efficient computation of a watertight 3D model
•  Increased efficiency because the fusion is performed in 2.5 D instead of 3D reducing its complexity tremendously
