Rapid Modelling of Complex Building Interiors
- 1.7k Downloads
Great progress has been made on building exterior modelling in recent years, largely driven by the availability of laser scanning techniques. However, the complementary modelling of building interiors has been handicapped both by the limited availability of data and by the limited analytic ability of available 3D data structures. Earlier papers of ours have discussed our progress in developing an appropriate data structure: this paper reports our final results, and demonstrates their feasibility with the modelling of two complex, linked buildings at the University of Glamorgan.
