The paper presents approach that allows to automate roof area calculationĀ process as well as other accompanying actions. These actions include: figure recognition, calculation of necessary dimensions, recognition of connections between roof surfaces, visualization of the roof in three-dimensional space and calculation of the roof area based on processed data. The aim of proposed approach is to automate as much actions as it is possible to reduce calculation errors and moreover increase the efficiency of whole process. Presented idea has been implemented and then tested for accuracy of calculations and capabilities. Performed tests showed that presented method is flexible and gives relatively small error in case of roof area calculation.
