Abstract
In 1982 P. Cameron gave a characterisation of dual polar spaces of finite rank viewed as point-line spaces. This characterisation makes essential use of the fact that dual polar spaces of finite rank have finite diameter. Our goal is to give a characterisation which includes dual polar spaces of infinite rank. Since dual polar spaces of infinite rank are disconnected, we introduce a point-relation that denotes pairs of points at "maximal distance", and we call this an opposition relation. This approach is in the spirit of the theory of twin buildings.
