Image a kite (1 m wide, 3 m high, both crossing at a third of the height).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Also imagine a digital camera (800x600 pixel with a horizontal field of view of 45°).

After launching the kite a photo is taken with the camera.

How can I easily calculate the exact position *and* rotation of the kite in a vectorspace defined by the camera at the moment the picture was taken?

I tried with trigonometry but failed. I assume there is an easier way with matrices but i don't know how. I appreciate any help.
