Abstract

The geometric visualisation of the buildings as the 3D solid structures can provide a comprehensive vision in terms of the assessment and simulation of solar exposed surfaces, which includes rooftops and facades. However, the main issue in the simulation a genuine data source that presents the real characteristics of buildings. This research aims to extract the 3D model as the solid boxes of urban structures automatically from Quickbird satellite image with 0.6 m GSD for assessing the solar energy potential. The results illustrate that the 3D model of building presents spatial visualisation of solar radiation for the entire building surface in a different direction.
