In this paper, a topology-based strategy for 3D reconstruction of complicated buildings from stereo image pair is put forward. It comes from our investigation on the applicability of topology analysis and a strongly topology-driven process that combines different levels of geometrical description with different levels of topological abstraction. The authors emphasize the topology-based strategy on different levels of geometrical description: Firstly a topology-based 3D data model is presented in which the topological relationships within a building or between geometrical objects are described implicitly or explicitly. Secondly based on description of vertexes level, interested vertexes are collected from stereo image pair and saturated attribute of each interior vertex is defined, furthermore an adjacency table is defined to store the connection attributes of verges automatically. Thirdly surfaces are looked on as polygons with closed verges on the basis of bi-directional querying of the adjacency table. Finally complicated buildings are described as graphs with interior and exterior topological attributes. Based on the strategy mentioned above, a software platform for 3D reconstruction of complicated buildings is built up. The efficiency of suggested method is examined through practical experiments.
