Abstract In the context of registration between videos and geographic information system (GIS)-based 3D building models — for instance in augmented reality applications — we propose a solution to one of the most critical problems, namely the registration initialization. Successful automatic 2D/3D matching is achieved by combining two context-dependent improvements. On one hand, we associate semantic information to the low-level primitives we used to reduce the problem complexity.» Read the summary
