In HouseCraft, we utilize rental ads to create realistic textured 3D models of building exteriors. In particular, we exploit the address of the property and its floorplan, which are typically available in the ad. The address allows us to extract Google StreetView images around the building, while the buildings floorplan allows for an efficient parametrization of the building in 3D via a small set of random variables. Our approach is able to precisely estimate the geometry and location of the property, and can create realistic 3D building models. The original SydneyHouse dataset contains 174 random houses in Sydney with: Annotated floorplan Adress and map Up to three streetview images, with computed semantic features Accurate house location and vertical heights (in accordance with streetview observations) Hang Chu, Shenlong Wang, Raquel Urtasun, Sanja Fidler.
