Through the analysis of the spatial characteristics of vehicle-borne laser point cloud data in urban street, a method to extract ground points accurately from point cloud data is proposed. Firstly, three-dimensional virtual grid is used to organize point cloud. Secondly, the initial low ground point in a grid is extracted by level plane constraint (LPC) method, and then a multi-scale neighbourhood analysis (MSNA) method is taken to optimize the low ground points further. Finally, the ground points from original point cloud data are filtered based on the local slope. The experiment shows that this method can effectively extract the ground points.
