International Conference on Computer Vision,
Cambridge, MA, June 1995.
A system has been developed to acquire, extend
and refine 3D geometric site models from aerial imagery.
This system hypothesize potential building roofs in an
image, automatically locates supporting geometric evidence in
other images, and determines the precise shape and position of
the new buildings via multi-image triangulation. Model-to-image
registration techniques are applied to align new, incoming images
against the site model. Model extension and refinement procedures
are then performed to add previously unseen buildings and to improve
the geometric accuracy of the existing 3D building models.
