It is generally difficult to classify an object type having different colors into the same class using only optical data such as a satellite or aerial image. This paper proposes a method that solves this problem by combining LiDAR data and an aerial image. The method extracts building pixels from LiDAR data and then identifies building objects on the aerial image by overlaying the LiDAR result to a segmented aerial image through the definite rule. This process plays a role in transforming building objects of LiDAR data to ones of the aerial image.
