The method combines octree indexing and RANSAC - two previously established but heretofore not integrated techniques. The approach was successfully applied to terrestrial point clouds of the facades of five highly decorative urban structures for which existing approaches could not provide an automated pipeline. The segmentation technique was relatively efficient and wholly scalable requiring only 1 second per 1,000 points, regardless of the façade’s level of ornamentation or non-recti-linearity. While the technique struggled with shallow protrusions, its ability to process a wide range of building types and opening shapes with data densities as low as 400 pts/m2 demonstrate its inherent potential as part of a large and more sophisticated processing approach.||Funding Details:||European Research Council||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Springer||Volume:||10073||Series/Report no.:||Lecture Notes in Computer Science||Copyright (published version):||2016 Springer||Keywords:||Building façades; Geometric representation; LiDAR||DOI:||10.1007/978-3-319-50832-0_44||Other versions:||https://www.isvc.net/||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||The 12th International Symposium on Visual Computing (ISVC 2016), Las Vegas, United States of America, 12-14 December 2016|
