Abstract.  We present a method to reconstruct the three-dimensional (3-D) Tang Dynasty building model from raw point clouds. Different from previous building modeling techniques, our method is developed for the Tang Dynasty building which does not exhibit planar primitives, facades, and repetitive structural elements as residential low- or high-rise buildings. The proposed method utilizes the structural property of the Tang Dynasty building to process the original point clouds. First, the raw point clouds are sliced into many parallel layers to generate a top-bottom hierarchical structure, and each layer is resampled to achieve a subset purification of 3-D point clouds. In addition, a series of different building components of the building are recognized by clustering these purifications of 3-D point clouds. In particular, we get the tree-structured topology of these different building components during slicing and clustering. Second, different solutions are explored to reconstruct its 3-D model for different building components. The overall model of building can be gotten based on the building components and tree-structured topology. Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed method is more efficient for generating a high realistic 3-D model of the Tang Dynasty building.
