Keywords: 3D Building Model, UAV Images, Point Cloud, Statistical Technique
Abstract. In this paper, we propose a method for automatically generating 3D building models from UAV image based point cloud data and for mapping building texture from UAV images. The proposed method generates dense point clouds from UAV images and isolates points from building areas through a statistical analysis. It then generates solid models as 3D building models by point cloud analysis per building area. Texture for 3D building solid models are created by mapping model face to UAV images. In order to verify the proposed method, various UAV image sets and point clouds were tested. As results, the possibility of generating cluster-type solid building models based on UAV images was confirmed. It is expected that this method can contribute to the active usage of UAV images in 3D spatial information generation. In the future, we plan to conduct research on improving the accuracy of curved building shapes and texturing accuracy.
