Abstract. This paper is reflecting a study on developing and reconstructing a 3D model from registering an aerial image on a point clouds or a DTM. The point clouds has been chosen as the main data for reconstructing a 3D model. For achieving the aspects of the study, all objects were individually detected and extracted from the point clouds and captured in a particular layer in a CAD environment. Then each object will be converted to a raster format and will be registered on the image. This process is called the reverse registration in this study. Since the object segmentation and detection from a digital image is a complex process, the reverse registration is implemented in order to assist the process of the object detection from the image. This paper will discuss two methods of object detection from point clouds for the reverse registration. These methods were proposed and implemented for this study. Also, the paper will discuss the reverse registration and how this method improves the process of the object detection and extraction from the image. Discussion of reconstructing a 3D model from registering the digital image on a DTM or DSM (both of which developed from the point clouds data) is another goal of this paper.
