Abstract

An accurate model of building interiors with detailed annotations is critical to protecting the first responders’ safety and building occupants during emergency operations. In collaboration with the City of Memphis, we collected extensive LiDAR and image data for the city’s buildings. We apply machine learning techniques to detect and classify objects of interest for first responders and create a comprehensive 3D indoor space database with annotated safety-related objects. This paper documents the challenges we encountered in data collection and processing, and it presents a complete 3D mapping and labeling system for the environments inside and adjacent to buildings. Moreover, we use a case study to illustrate our process and show preliminary evaluation results.
