Modelling building costs from 3D building models - estimating the construction effort from image-based surface models of dry-stone sheperd shelters (Kras, Slovenia)

In the second half of the 19th and early 20th century, sheep shepherds have built dry-stone shelters all over the Slovene Kras (or Karst) region. Despite being made out of stones that are interlocked without the use of any binding material, many of …

Mind your grey tones -- examining the influence of decolourization methods on interest point extraction and matching for architectural image-based modelling

This paper investigates the use of different greyscale conversion algorithms to decolourize colour images as input for two Structure-from-Motion (SfM) software packages. Although SfM software commonly works with a wide variety of frame imagery (old …
