(54)IMAGE CAPTURING APPARATUS, MONITORING SYSTEM, IMAGE PROCESSING APPARATUS, IMAGE CAPTURING METHOD, AND NON-TRANSITORY COMPUTER READABLE RECORDING MEDIUM


(57) There is provided an image capturing apparatus that captures a plurality of images, calculates a three-dimensional position from the plurality of images, and outputs the plurality of images and information about the three-dimensional position. The image capturing apparatus includes an image capturing unit, a camera parameter storage unit, a position calculation unit, a position selection unit, and an image complementing unit. The image capturing unit outputs the plurality of images using at least three cameras. The camera parameter storage unit stores in advance camera parameters including occlusion information. The position calculation unit calculates three dimensional positions of a plurality of points. The position selection unit selects a piece of position information relating to a subject area that does not have an occlusion, and outputs selected position information. The image complementing unit generates a complementary image, and outputs the complementary image and the selected position information.
