[Article] A Machine Learning approach for 3D point cloud classification

We present the first results of a new, rapid, and accurate Machine Learning method to semantically segment 3D heritage datasets based on a Multi-Layer Multi-Resolution (MLMC) approach. It deals with the introduction of point cloud classification methods that can play an essential role for better data usage, model definition, analysis and conservation in Cultural Heritage field.

The identification of precise architectural components in point clouds can be very useful because it allows the direct use of 3D point clouds for architectural interpretation inside and conservation activities planning, avoiding the modelling phase typical of HBIM (Historic Building Information Modelling). This latter phase is a time-consuming process which can also lead to a great simplification of detailed surfaces, losing the metric reliability intrinsic present in the acquired point clouds.
