Abstract
Vexcel proposes to build an urban modeling system by combining the SketchUp 3D CAD tool with the photogrammetry based as-built modeling tool Foto-G. These tools represent the state of the art in both, intuitive 3D modeling user interface, and automation supported 3D feature extraction. The final result of this effort will allow the Army to create large simulation databases almost fully automatically from spaceborne, aerial, or handheld still images or video sequences. Full comliance with all relevant database standards will be provided. Automated attribution with non-visual characteristics will be supported. The cost of urban models and the time to create them will be reduced by an order of magnitude compared to the current manual approach.
