We propose a complete framework for the automatic modeling from point cloud data. Initially, the point cloud data are preprocessed into manageable datasets, which are then separated into clusters using a novel two-step, unsupervised clustering algorithm. The boundaries extracted for each cluster are then simplified and refined using a fast energy minimization process. Finally, three-dimensional models are generated based on the roof outlines. The proposed framework has been extensively tested, and the results are reported.
