Introduction

3D modelling from kite and pole aerial photographs


Low level aerial photographs can be used to build interactive three dimensional models. These can be scaled and georeferenced  and imported into GIS and Cad packages.

Software analyses photographs to determine where each photo taken from in relation to the other photos and the object itself and the rough shape of this object.

It then creates a point cloud. This is then processed to create a surface mesh and finally a fully textured model. Models are accurate to within 1-3%, depending on the quality of images.
