This paper investigates the effects of normal mapping on the perception of geometric depth between stereoscopic and non-stereoscopic views. Results show, that in a head-tracked environment, the addition of binocular disparity has no impact on the error rate in the detection of normal-mapped geometry. It does however significantly shorten the detection time.
