3D city modeling from airborne imagery includes mainly two parts: (1) image processing procedures and (2) 3D modeling for man-made objects such as buildings, roads and other objects. Line extraction and stereo matching are usually utilized as an image processing procedures. However, there are some issues for automatic man-made object modeling. In particular, spatial data acquisition of buildings are important for reliable city modeling. In these circumstances, this paper focuses on more efficient line matching method using Least-Median of Squares (LMedS). The LMedS have ability to calculate the trifocal tensor more accurately than least squares method, and the LMedS is able to remove inaccurate matched lines during the line matching procedure. Therefore, more accurate line matching can be performed, and more efficient city modeling was realized. This paper describes more efficient line matching method using LMedS, and investigates an adaptability of this system to city modeling.
