A system has been developed to acquire, extend and refine
3D geometric site models from aerial imagery. The system hypothesizes
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.
Projectively warped image intensity maps are associated with the
faces of each recovered building, allowing realistic rendering
of the scene from new viewpoints.
