What exactly is photogrammetry?
Photogrammetry is the discipline of making measurements from images. Traditionally, individual images were used to measure distance in mapping applications. However, modern technology such as digital cameras, high-speed computers and specialized software have allowed photogrammetry to evolve to facilitate the creation of complex 3D models from several thousands of images. 3D models created in this way provide a new basis for deriving true orthophotos and height information, and allow for complex measurements such as volume calculation.
Familiar with UAV photogrammetry?
You may have heard of “photogrammetry” in relation to drones. However, UAV’s themselves do not perform any photogrammetric calculations. Rather, they offer a modern and practical method for taking aerial photographs. These images can then be used for photogrammetric processing in specialized software or through an online service. During processing, the photos are used to create 3D models, orthophotos, maps and height models (DEMs).
Ever considered terrestrial photogrammetry?
Terrestrial photogrammetry is a simple method that is very versatile and useful in many applications. By rotating the standard aerial imaging angle by 90 degrees, it is easy to take photos of buildings, facades, traffic areas, rock walls etc. using conventional handheld photography. These images can then be used to make 3D models and orthoviews. You can also use this method in areas where it is impossible, impractical or illegal to fly a drone. Terrestrial images can be processed alone, or in combination with UAV data to produce complex models recorded from many angles.
