We present an automated procedure for the creation of architectural plant models. It uses an algorithm for the computation of skeletons from sensor data. The skeletons are annotated with semantic labels for the extraction of architectural parameters. The values of several samples are averaged and serve as the basis for the model, which is implemented as a Relational Growth Grammar.
