The ability to create and edit a model of a large-scale city is necessary for a variety of applications such as web-based navigation (e.g., MapQuest, GoogleEarth), emergency response training and simulation, urban planning, and content creation for the entertainment industry. Satellite and aerial photographs provide overhead views of large urban spaces. Although the layout of the urban space is captured as images, it consists of a complex collection of man-made structures arranged in parcels, city blocks, and neighborhoods.
