Camera Mapping allows you to project a texture (in most cases a photograph) on some simple geometry to create a 3D object that can be used in more then one camera angle. Of course the angle is limited but small movements are possible, which is often sufficent. This technique is based on recreating the original camera postion, angle and optical settings. If you have precise information on this you can use it directly, but in many cases some adjustment by sight will suffice.
