Shuo Li, Hui Wang, Qiuhe Ma, Xuan Zha

Abstract

Because of its large amount of data, airborne LiDAR points cloud filtering is often time-consuming. On the basis of the traditional morphological LiDAR points cloud filtering, a method which adopted the parallel technique based on GPU and assigned the massive operations to be parallel executed in many computing unit to achieve the purpose of fast filtering was proposed. Through the corresponding experiments, the validity and efficiency of the proposed LiDAR points cloud filtering method were verified.
