Color-guided depth map super-resolution (CDSR) improve the spatial resolution of a low-quality depth map with the corresponding high-quality color map, benefiting various applications such as 3D reconstruction, virtual reality, and augmented reality. While conventional CDSR methods typically rely on convolutional neural networks or transformers, diffusion models (DMs) have demonstrated notable effectiveness in high-level vision tasks. In this work, we present a novel CDSR paradigm that utilizes a diffusion model within the latent space to generate guidance for depth map super-resolution. The proposed method comprises a guidance generation network (GGN), a depth map super-resolution network (DSRN), and a guidance recovery network (GRN). The GGN is specifically designed to generate the guidance while managing its compactness. Additionally, we integrate a simple but effective feature fusion module and a transformer-style feature extraction module into the DSRN, enabling it to leverage guided priors in the extraction, fusion, and reconstruction of multi-model images. Taking into account both accuracy and efficiency, our proposed method has shown superior performance in extensive experiments when compared to state-of-the-art methods.
