geometry and texture of urban surfaces could aid applications such as urban planning, training, disaster simulation, and virtual-heritage conservation. A standard technique used to create large-scale city models automatically or semi-automatically is to apply stereo vision on aerial or satellite imagery. In recent years, advances in resolution and accuracy have also made airborne laser scanners suitable for generating digital surface models (DSM) and 3D models. Although you can perform edge… CONTINUE READING
