Is photogrammetry as accurate as lidar?

Is photogrammetry as accurate as lidar?

Elmer Bol, new director of reality capture at Autodesk and founder of Alice Labs, spoke at SPAR Europe in November about the increasingly sophisticated technology that is allowing the accuracy of point clouds created by photogrammetry to approach the accuracy of terrestrial lidar and laser scanning.

3D model of a real forest from airborne LiDAR

3D model of a real forest from airborne LiDAR

This is a fly through 3D digital model of a real forest (Bois noir forest Barcelonnette, France) from LiDAR derived forest inventory parameters and aerial ortho-image. The model was developed as part of my research on ‘Forest inventory parameters and Carbon mapping from airborne LiDAR’. High density, small footprint discrete airborne LiDAR is capable of capturing rich structural information of ...

Photogrammetry With a UAV

Photogrammetry With a UAV

This video demonstrate how UAV’s carrying photogrammetry payloads can be used in the industry. The data you see in this video was gathered using “DINGO” a VTOL UAV designed by the author. You can also see footage of a smaller variant which will be replacing it. This kind of data can also be gathered on larger areas, with increased precision, ...
