The Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (FDNPS), operated by Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings, Inc., suffered a meltdown as a result of a large tsunami triggered by the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11, 2011. We have been conducting demonstration tests for detection of radioactive hotspots inside the FDNPS buildings using a Compton camera, a kind of gamma-ray imager. In this work, we introduced the 3D visualization of radioactive substances by using combination of the Compton camera and optical camera based on Structure from Motion (SfM). By taking photographs of the experimental environment while freely moving, a 3D structural model of the environment can be reconstructed from the multiple photographs, and the movement trajectory of the optical camera can be estimated simultaneously using the SfM. Furthermore, the radioactive substances can be visualized by drawing an image of the radioactive substances on the 3D structural model using gamma-ray data acquired by the Compton camera. In the demonstration, we succeeded in visualizing a $$^{137}$$Cs-radiation source on the 3D structural model of the experimental environment while freely moving these devices. This technology is useful for making it easy to recognize radioactive substances in decommissioning work site such as the FDNPS.
