Paper Abstract

Aiming at spatial characteristics and echo information of the LiDAR point cloud data, design a regional segmentation and decision tree combined lidar point data classification method. First, based on the continuity of the LiDAR point cloud to finish the experiment area's region segmentation. Then, statistics each area boundaries and internal the number of dihedral angle cosine, to draw a line chart. Using the intersection's cosine of line chart , and region segmentation's minimum height as threshold to determine the ground point and the non-ground points. Finally, statistics separately all LiDAR point data set's dihedral angle, echo times, echo intensity, mean elevation, four constraint information to build a decision tree to determine which type of feature vesting each divided region. Using classification confusion matrix to assess the classification's accuracy, overall accuracy is higher than 94%. Experimental results show that this method can effectively separate roads, trees, buildings and terrain.
