Why use photogrammetry for surveying and mapping?

Photogrammetry is a process involving the generation of precise measurements from photographs. However, in recent times, photogrammetry has evolved into a multipurpose technique that has been readily integrated into an array of modern applications. Photogrammetry incorporates remote sensing and accelerated photography to create accurate measurements that are capable of processing 2-dimensional photographs into 3-dimensional models. […]

Photogrammetry with the smartphone

Have you ever wished that you could easily transfer a real object into a digital file? The technology is here, but many people simply don’t have access to high-end 3D modeling that can perform object reconstruction. However, there is another, much cheaper way to create 3D models corresponding to real-world objects using your smartphone. With […]

The importance of shading

3D object reconstruction from photos is not a rocket science, especially with a help of photogrammetry based software solutions. Though the analysis of the 3D object seems easy and requires only few steps, unforeseen obstacles may occur anytime. Photos and their quality are the core when talking about analysis of 3D models. It is important […]

How to get started with 3D modeling?

3D is getting to be more involved in so many different areas, everything from development of films, virtual reality, scientific research, to special design. It is touching hundreds of industries right now. If you want to get into a lot of research, visualization, medical design, much of that is 3D modeling. In short – the […]

Smart, simple & safe surveying

Most known, the surveying business is far from cut-and-dried. For professional surveyors, a typical workweek can present a host of challenges that resist easy solutions or “quick fixes.” While it would be impossible to catalog and quantify all of the challenges that land surveyors face, the following issues arise often enough to warrant special consideration. […]

Slope stability evaluation and landslide prevention

The rapidly growing infrastructure tends to leave behind a number of failures, that are usually fixed after a bigger disaster. The same situation happens when building the roads with slopes aside. To prevent such mishaps, photogrammetric surveying can help determining at least one major factor with minimum effort – slope angle or the slope height. […]

THE DIVERSITY OF PHOTOGRAMMETRY

Photogrammetry, as its name implies, is a 3-dimensional coordinate measuring technique that uses photographs as the fundamental medium for measurements. The fundamental principle used by photogrammetry is triangulation or more specifically called aerial triangulation. By taking photographs from at least two different locations, so-called “lines of sight” can be developed from each camera to points […]

PHOTOGRAMMETRY: FROM MOVIES TO SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS

Many people ask us about photogrammetry and what it really means. Simply put, photogrammetry is the science of making measurements from photographs. It is the science and technology of generating 3D information from 2D measurements. Today the rapid evolution of digital cameras and computer capabilities, analytical software and data storage has expanded the variety of […]

How to convert pictures to spectacular 3D models?

Virtual reality (VR) is a computer-generated scenario that simulates a realistic experience. Step by step it becomes an integral part of people’s everyday lives. Now we can choose furniture by “walking” around the apartment in 3D mode, visit museums or new places just putting on a pair of glasses. Virtual reality literally makes it possible […]
