In recent years, the availability of off-the-shelf geometric data for an urban environment has increased. During rendering, ground level images are mapped onto the façades of the buildings to improve the visual quality of the scene. This paper focuses on a technique that enables ground level images to be automatically integrated into an existing coarse three-dimensional environment. The approach utilises the planar nature of architectural scenes to enable the automatic extraction of a building façade from an image and its registration into the virtual environment.
