Paper Abstract

This paper presents an algorithm for aligning 2D video to 3D point clouds. The paper is a vignette of on-going research in the area of 3D Urban Environment Modelling. The aim of this research is to produce accurate, fast and useable 3D maps of the dynamic urban environment. Paper presents development of the algorithm followed by the processing and implementation procedure to produce a realistic 3D model of an urban environment model from 3D point cloud and RGB video collected by the system. To allow further discussion the paper concludes with the results of draping 2D video frames to a solid surface developed from 3D point clouds.
