An Automatic Comparison Approach to Detect Errors on 3D City Models


3D building models are needed in several professional domains. To provide better results, these models must be errors-freeand that is why it is required to have a way to detect and to correct errors. These errors can be geometric, topological orsemantic. By using a topological structure called EBM-LCC that allows to model buildings, we create a new tool that allowsto detect these three type of errors in 3D city models. The solution we propose is an algorithm that compares two EBM-LCC.This algorithm can be used to compare two different models, for example acquired with two different processes, or resultingfrom two different acquisition campaigns. It is also an interesting tool to compare and validate algorithms. In this work, wecompare an EBM-LCC loaded directly from a CityGML model with an EBM-LCC reconstructed from a soup of polygons only.Then we can use the result of this comparison to outline possible differences or to correct one of the two models by using theinformation of the other one. This algorithm allowed to automatically detect and correct semantic errors on several models thatare currently used by professionals. This shows the interest of EBM-LCC for the city modeling domain as it helps to reach anerror-free model.
