We present an automatic mutual information (MI) registration method for mobile LiDAR and panoramas collected from a driving vehicle. The suitability of MI for registration of aerial LiDAR and aerial oblique images has been demonstrated in [17], under an assumption that minimization of joint entropy (JE) is a sufficient approximation of maximization of MI. In this paper, we show that this assumption is invalid for the ground-level data. The entropy of a LiDAR image can not be regarded as… CONTINUE READING
