A new algorithm for extracting roof tops was developed.
Using the assumption that roof tops are planar in construction, a new approach was developed using volume of point clouds to determine whether a cluster contains planar points.
This approach yields very promising results and with attention applied to its weaknesses, should provide another algorithm which can rival currently available roof top detection methods.
- easy to understand Python
- mostly cross-platform (may need to be tweaked for Windows/Mac)
- high accuracy
- actually easy to understand!
