This seems like a dumb question to have to ask, but I was unable to find a
solid answer in the several psychology and vision texts that I have on hand.
What is the maximum range of distances over which binocular disparity alone
can deliver reasonably accurate distance information?
I mean this for the case of a human viewing typical, natural scenes. Some
old notes of mine say that 20 feet is the max distance for which stereopsis
can be used, but I have no idea where this figure came from and would like to
find better evidence.
