Out of Plumb Assessment for Cylindrical-Like Minaret Structures Using Geometric Primitives Fitting

Bashar Alsadik, Nagham Amer Abdulateef, Yousif Husain Khalaf
2019 ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information  
In this paper, we suggest an out of plumb assessment procedure using a geometric primitives least squares fitting technique, namely, cylinders, cones, and 3D circles.  ...  Accordingly, the out of plumb is computed by fitting one of the mentioned 3D primitives to the minaret point cloud where its major axis orientation is computed.  ...  Conflicts of Interest: The authors declare no conflict of interest.  ...
