bmdl : Brown Lidar Mesh Modeling Library

This library is designed to extract 3-d surface meshes of buildings from BuckEye style LIDAR data. The input is a pair of GeoTiff images representing first and last LIDAR return. An optional third input image representing an estimate of bare earth can be provided. If not provided, a constant ground elevation is estimated from the returns and used. The detected buildings are are saved in KML format for easy viewing in Google Earth.
