3D representations of geographical surfaces in the form of dense point clouds can be a valuable tool for documenting and reconstructing a structural collapse, such as the 2021 Champlain Towers Condominium collapse in Surfside, Florida. Point cloud data reconstructed from aerial footage taken by uncrewed aerial systems at frequent intervals from a dynamic search and rescue scene poses significant challenges. Properly aligning large point clouds in this context, or registering them, poses noteworthy issues as they capture multiple regions whose geometries change over time. These regions denote dynamic features such as excavation machinery, cones marking boundaries and the structural collapse rubble itself. In this paper, the performances of commonly used point cloud registration methods for dynamic scenes present in the raw data are studied. The use of Iterative Closest Point (ICP), Rigid - Coherent Point Drift (CPD) and PointNetLK for registering dense point clouds, reconstructed sequentially over a time-frame of five days, is studied and evaluated. All methods are compared by error in performance, execution time, and robustness with a concluding analysis and a judgement of the preeminent method for the specific data at hand is provided.
