But, those LiDAR buildings up close look terrible; very jagged, sometimes incorporating surrounding trees into the footprint, and are not aligned in a consistent matter
I was thinking of possibly simplifying what I have in a series of conversions to get a more uniform look, but I'm not sure if its possible or if I'm going about it the right way, or whether its a good idea at all.
- I was thinking of converting all the LiDAR derived building foot prints to points, and extracting the area of each polygon
- Then build simple square polygons off the points with the provided area.
- Then, if possible, align the buildings to the road data. I've done similar things with Arc's Representation tool but I'm not sure it I can do it any other way.
What do you think of this? Good idea? Forget it and stick with what I have? Any thoughts appreciated.
