Abstract. Based on the characteristics of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) system for low altitude aerial photogrammetry and the need of three dimensional (3D)city modeling, a method of fast 3D building modeling using the images from UAV carrying four-combined camera is studied. Firstly, by contrasting and analyzing the mosaic structures of the existing four-combined cameras, a new type of four-combined camera with special design of overlap images is designed, which improves the self-calibration function to achieve the high precision imaging by automatically eliminating the error of machinery deformation and the time lag with every exposure, and further reduce the weight of the imaging system. Secondly, several-angle images including vertical images and oblique images gotten by the UAV system are used for the detail measure of building surfaces and the texture extraction. Finally, two tests that are aerial photography with large scale mapping of 1:1000 and 3D building construction in Shandong University of Science and Technology and aerial photography with large scale mapping of 1:500 and 3D building construction in Henan University of Urban Construction, provide authentication model for construction of 3D building based on combined wide-angle camera images from UAV system. It is demonstrated that the UAV system for low altitude aerial photogrammetry can be used in the construction of 3D building production, and the technology solution in this paper offers a new, fast and technical plan for the 3D expression of the city landscape, fine modeling and visualization.
