I'm in the middle of something along those lines.  I have digitised plan 
and elevations of tree root systems, and i want to re-create the three 
dimensional structure.  As I have plan and elevation, all the information 
is there, it's just a matter of matching the bits.  This is a major task 
though, the 'images' are very large collections of strings of line 
segments (Terracad export format i think).  If there's anything out there 
on getting three dimensional data from slightly mis-matched plan and 
elevation data, I'd be very interested.

I'm not sure if your problem is exactly the same, are you dealing with 
structured data or bitmaps (images).  Anyway, if your request doesn't
bring forth anything here, comp.graphics would probably be the place to
