Automatically Generating Roof Models from Building Footprints
Modelling Large Urban Environments using traditional modelling techniques would prove too time consuming a process. Consequently a method is required for generating large urban environments quickly without requiring a labour intensive process or expensive data. Some approaches to resolve this problem have been undertaken through the use of procedural modelling or statistics. However the test subject is usually a dense urban environment where the primary buildings are of the skyscraper style. This paper presents the initial design and implementation towards a method for modelling a large environment based on building footprint information. It shows the use of the straight skeleton method with modifications to allow several different roof styles to be generated. Keywords Roof Modelling, Straight Skeleton, Virtual Environments, Building Footprint, Rectilinear Polygon
