This paper describes a method for describing a three-dimensional (3-D) scene by integrating color and range data. Range data is obtained by a feature-based stereo method developed in our laboratory. A color image is segmented into uniform color regions. A plane is fitted to the range data inside a segmented region. Regions are classified into three types based on the range data. A certain types of regions are merged and the others remain unless the region type is modified. The region type is modified if the range data on a plane are selected by removing of the some range data. As a result, the scene is represented by planar surfaces with homogeneous colors. Experimental results for real scenes are shown.
