Create 3D Vegetation

In order to have a completely 3D city model, it is necessary to possess a vegetation model. However, this is not often available in city open databases. It is then necessary to be able to automatically produce such models since some datasets containing information about vegetation can be combined to generate a 3D model. We developed a method that uses aerial LiDAR and infrared orthophoto to produce a 3D model of the vegetation in the city of Lyon.
