Automated Building Outline Detection
A method for detecting outlines of buildings from aerially acquired data comprising a plurality of points, each comprising an (x, y, z)-tuple, comprises defining a reference plane, dividing the reference plane into an array of bins and mapping each point of the laser data to a bin of the reference plane. A discrimination function is applied to each bin to provide a scalar value. Outlines of buildings and portions of buildings ar then determined from the scalar values. Specific discrimination functions are also described including ones that enable transformation of the data into a format compatible with computation modeling software.
