The relative orientation of independently acquired terrestrial laser scan point clouds is an important task. If good starting values are available, well-known iterative algorithms exist to determine the required transformation. In this paper, we describe a method to obtain such starting values fully automatically, which is applicable to scenes containing planar elements. Our method first extracts planar patches in each scan individually and then assigns patch triples across scans in order to… CONTINUE READING
