We present an automatic approach for modeling buildings from aerial LiDAR data. The method produces accurate, watertight and compact meshes under planar constraints which are especially designed for urban scenes. The LiDAR point cloud is classified through a non-convex energy minimization problem in order to separate the points labeled as building. Roof structures are then extracted from this point subset, and used to control the meshing procedure. Experiments highlight the potential of our method in term of minimal rendering, accuracy and compactness.
