I'm reading this paper: http://arxiv.org/abs/1310.2053 (The role of RGB-D benchmark datasets: an overview) and see the following words:
Thanks to accurate depth data, currently published papers could present a broad range of RGB-D setups addressing well-known problems in computer vision in which the Microsoft Kinect ranging from SLAM [10, 12, 19, 17, 35, 11] over 3d reconstruction [2, 33, 38, 32, 1] over realtime face  and hand  tracking to motion capturing and gait analysis [34, 41, 8, 7, 4]
I thought of the term SLAM and 3D Reconstruction being the same thing, while the paper says the opposite with a bunch of citations (which still haven't tell the two apart).
In my opinion, Mapping in SLAM is the same term as 3D Reconstruction, while Localization is the essential part for Mapping. So I don't find a difference between SLAM and 3D Reconstruction, am I wrong (or is the author misclassfying)?
