    Mobile mapping systems are becoming a popular method for collecting high quality near 3D information of terrestrial scenes. Modern mobile mapping systems can produce millions of georeferenced points per minute. These can be used to gather quantitative information about surfaces and objects. With this geospatial data it is becoming possible to segment and extract the road surface. In this paper, we will detail a novel LIDAR based road edge extraction algorithm which is applicable to both urban and rural road sections.
