Cross-Verification of As-Built Point Cloud and GIS-Related Map Data

This study cross-validates existing urban maps using point cloud models to update GIS related data. The model, as-built 3D data, is created to integrate with maps in an architectural CAD platform. The clouds are referred by existing vector maps to verify inconsistency and to update 3D spatial relationships between subjects and environment. The cloud model shows its top reference hierarchy as the updated data for topographic-derived urban maps.
