3D model creation has become an important aspect of modern mapping and in architecture we are seeing the need for these models for planning, renovation, restoration, as-constructed documentation and building information modeling (BIM).

Drone photogrammetry combines with computer vision to allows us to derive models from multiple overlapping views via a process known as multi-view stereopsis (MVS) (AKA structure-frommotion (SfM)).

The key to creating an accurate and complete 3D model is careful flight planning (AKA camera network design), well placed ground control and of course the right software. This workshop will discuss this workflow and the software options and then run through a practical example in AgiSoft PhotoScan, a commercial MVS software package.

The workshop will be run by Dr Steve Harwin, a spatial scientist and commercial drone pilot who specialises in high accuracy 3D point cloud and 3D model creation.
