Abstract : The NATO Research and Technology Organisation (RTO) Research Task Group (RTG) on 3D-Modelling of Urban Terrain (SET-118) was formed to study various representation forms for objects in urban terrain, to inspect procedures for automatic scene reconstruction by exploiting the data of modern sensors, and to discuss potential assessment metrics and criteria. The technologies under investigation cover active and passive sensors, such as flash laser, video, or interferometric SAR. For the modelling and the automatic 3D scene reconstruction, the concepts and requirements are discussed along with the corresponding representation forms. Military applications that benefit from the availability of 3D models and thereby show the relevance of these models are itemized and discussed.
