Operational Pipeline for Large-scale 3D Reconstruction of Buildings from Satellite Images

Abstract : Automatic 3D reconstruction of urban scenes from stereo pairs of satellite images remains a popular yet challenging research topic, driven by numerous applications such as telecommunications and defense. The quality of reconstruction results depends particularly on the quality of the available stereo pair. In this paper, we propose an operational pipeline for large-scale 3D reconstruction of buildings from stereo satellite images. The proposed chain uses U-net to extract contour polygons of buildings, and the combination of optimization and computational geometry techniques to reconstruct a digital terrain model and a digital height model, and to correctly estimate the position of building footprints. The pipeline has proven to be efficient for 3D building reconstruction , even if the close-to-nadir image is not available.
