Paper Abstract

The main purpose of the algorithm in this paper is to extract geometry information (mainly includes the plane function, the outlines and the corners of the building surfaces) from the point cloud. The main process includes: filter and sort the point cloud, get fitting lines in each column and merge the fitting lines, get fitting faces from the fitting lines and merge the fitting faces, extract the outlines and corners of the merged faces. The advantage of the algorithm includes: A face's adjacent faces can be got, the disturbing points can be automatically removed and the computation amount is relatively small. The algorithm is particularly suit for the point cloud got by vehicle-borne laser scan.
