Vehicle-related ground occlusion is a common problem in MLS data. This study aims to design a detection and reconstruction method of static vehicle-related ground occlusion for MLS data. Ground extraction and vehicle segmentation are performed on the input point cloud data in advance. Then an α-shape boundary based on the prior vehicle geometry is...

A code list in Unified Modeling Language (UML), a simple list of values without any structure, can be employed as a simple data type to further capture the semantics of a domain. The code list values as used in international standards (e.g. ISO and OGC) are generally presented without definition, reference to the source of a definition, multi-lingu...

The interest in using 3D data in property valuation has been increasing during the last decade. The usage of 3D data models in valuation can be basically grouped in two main categories: (a) supporting mathematical models with variables produced through 3D analyses (e.g. view) in order to better estimate the values of properties and (b) consuming 3D...

Efficient spatial queries are frequently needed to extract useful information from massive nD point clouds. Most previous studies focus on developing solutions for orthogonal window queries, while rarely considering the polytope query. The latter query, which includes the widely adopted polygonal query in 2D, also plays a critical role in many nD s...
Conference Paper
Intense exploitation of land in the vertical direction has brought up complex legal relations between different types of spatial units with various characteristics (e.g., land, marine, air, underground parcels, and infrastructure objects). Therefore, the use of 3D models is required to clearly represent real property and associated Rights, Restrict...

Mathematical morphology is a technique recently applied directly for point cloud data. Its working principle is based on the removal and addition of points from an auxiliary point cloud that acts as a structuring element. However, in certain applications within a more complex process, these changes to the original data represent an unacceptable los...

The prime purpose of Cadastral data – whether in the form of maps, survey plans or notes, or a digital database is the definitive demarcation of the extent of properties – and can be seen primarily as a decision support facility (“Can a structure be built here?”, “Where can I build a fence?”, “Should I buy this property”?). There are, however many...

When users zoom out on a digital map, some area objects become too tiny to be seen, resulting in visual clutters. To avoid this problem, the relatively unimportant areas should be merged with their neighbors to form larger areas. In order to provide small and smooth changes so that users can easily keep their contexts, we merge a pair of areas by e...

An indoor logical network qualitatively represents abstract relationships between indoor spaces, and it can be used for path computation. In this paper, we concentrate on the logical network that does not have notions for metrics. Instead, it relies on the semantics and properties of indoor spaces. A navigation path can be computed by deriving para...

In this paper, a method is proposed for solving relative translations of 3D point clouds collected by Mobile Laser Scanning (MLS) techniques. The proposed approach uses the attributes of the 3D points to generate and match 2D-projections, by employing a simple correlation technique instead of matching in 3D. As a result, the developed method depend...
