From photos to models.
Strategies for using digital photogrammetry in your project

Photogrammetry has rapidly gained popularity in archaeology as a quick, easy, and low-cost method for creating 3D models of objects, structures, sites, and landscapes. The combined effect of relatively low-cost hardware and software, increased computing power, and greater ease of data collection requirements make the method a very attractive option. So is close-range/structure from motion photogrammetry the right solution for your needs?  This webinar serves to provide the basic knowledge needed to answer this question, including details on data capture and processing, product generation, and dissemination.  The pros and cons of close-range photogrammetry will be discussed for a variety of project types, as well as recommendations for creating the most accurate and useful models for your applications. Analysis including documentation, 3D spatial analysis, change detection, classification, and site and feature prospecting will be covered.
