Abstract : Geometric modeling of man-made objects from 3D data is one of the biggest challenges in Computer Vision and Computer Graphics. The long term goal is to generate a CAD-style model in an as-automatic-as-possible way. To achieve this goal, difficult issues have to be addressed including (i) the scalability of the modeling process with respect to massive input data, (ii) the robustness of the methodology to various defect-laden input measurements, and (iii) the geometric quality of output models. Existing methods work well to recover the surface of free-form objects. However, in case of manmade objects, it is difficult to produce results that approach the quality of high-structured representations as CAD models.In this thesis, we present a series of contributions to the field. First, we propose a classification method based on deep learning to distinguish objects from raw 3D point cloud. Second, we propose an algorithm to detect planar primitives in 3D data at different level of abstraction. Finally, we propose a mechanism to assemble planar primitives into compact polygonal meshes. These contributions are complementary and can be used sequentially to reconstruct city models at various level-of-details from airborne 3D data. We illustrate the robustness, scalability and efficiency of our methods on both laser and multi-view stereo data composed of man-made objects.
