This work proposes the use of a robust geometrical segmentation algorithm to detect inherent shapes from dense point clouds. The points are first divided into voxels based on their connectivity and normal consistency. Then, the voxels are classified into different types of shapes through a multi-scale prediction algorithm and multiple shapes includ...

This paper proposes an efficient approach for the plane segmentation of indoor and corridor scenes. Specifically, the proposed method first uses voxels to pre-segment the scene and establishes the topological relationship between neighboring voxels. The voxel normal vectors are projected onto the surface of a Gaussian sphere based on the correspond...

Deep learning methods are notoriously data-hungry, which requires a large number of labeled samples. Unfortunately, the large amount of interactive sample labeling efforts has dramatically hindered the application of deep learning methods, especially for 3D modeling tasks, which require heterogeneous samples. To alleviate the work of data annotatio...
Article
Efficient and accurate road extraction from remote sensing imagery is important for applications related to navigation and Geographic Information System updating. Existing data-driven methods based on semantic segmentation recognize roads from images pixel by pixel, which generally uses only local spatial information and causes issues of discontinu...
Article
Full-text available
Today, mobile laser scanning and oblique photogrammetry are two standard urban remote sensing acquisition methods, and the cross-source point-cloud data obtained using these methods have significant differences and complementarity. Accurate co-registration can make up for the limitations of a single data source, but many existing registration metho...

The reconstruction of level-of-detail 2 (LOD-2) buildings has drawn considerable attention over the past two decades. Since completely automatic reconstruction approaches still face many difficulties in industry solutions, efficient and robust interactive modeling tools are of huge demand. This paper proposes an interactive LOD-2 modeling approach...
Article
This article is focused on a challenging topic emerging from the registration of point clouds, specifically the registration of dynamic objects with low overlapping ratio. This problem is especially difficult when the static scanner is installed on a floating platform, and the objects it scans are also floating. These issues make most of the automa...

3D urban reconstruction of buildings from remotely sensed imagery has drawn significant attention during the past two decades. While aerial imagery and LiDAR provide higher resolution, satellite imagery is cheaper and more efficient to acquire for large scale need. However, the high, orbital altitude of satellite observation brings intrinsic challe...

3D building models are needed for urban planning and smart city. These models can be generated from stereo aerial images, satellite images or LiDAR point clouds. In this paper, we propose a geometric object-based building reconstruction method from satellite imagery derived point clouds. The goal is to achieve a geometrically correct, topologically...

Material recognition methods use image context and local cues for pixel-wise classification. In many cases only a single image is available to make a material prediction. Image sequences, routinely acquired in applications such as mutliview stereo, can provide a sampling of the underlying reflectance functions that reveal pixel-level material attri...

Object reconstruction from airborne LiDAR data is a hot topic in photogrammetry and remote sensing. Power fundamental infrastructure monitoring plays a vital role in power transmission safety. This paper proposes a heuristic reconstruction method for power pylons widely used in high voltage transmission systems from airborne LiDAR point cloud, whic...
Article
Full-text available
3D semantic labeling is a fundamental task in airborne laser scanning (ALS) point clouds processing. The complexity of observed scenes and the irregularity of point distributions make this task quite challenging. Existing methods rely on a large number of features for the LiDAR points and the interaction of neighboring points, but cannot exploit th...

The identification and representation of building roof topology are basic, but important, issues for 3D building model reconstruction from point clouds. Always, the roof topology is expressed by the roof topology graph (RTG), which stores the plane–plane adjacencies as graph edges. As the decision of the graph edges is often based on local statisti...
Article
Full-text available
RANdom SAmple Consensus (RANSAC) is a widely adopted method for LiDAR point cloud segmentation because of its robustness to noise and outliers. However, RANSAC has a tendency to generate false segments consisting of points from several nearly coplanar surfaces. To address this problem, we formulate the weighted RANSAC approach for the purpose of po...

In this work, we concentrate on the hierarchy and completeness of roof topology, and the aim is to avoid or correct the errors in roof topology. The hierarchy of topology is expressed by the hierarchical roof topology graph (HRTG) in accord with the definition of CityGML LOD (level of details). We decompose the roof topology graph (RTG) with a prog...
