Advanced True Orthophoto from Photogrammetry and LiDAR Integration

This flythrough over The University of Calgary shows the successfull integration between LiDAR data and high resolution true-orthorectified aerial photographs. This is part of a PhD research that involves integration of LiDAR, Photogrammetry, and GIS for improved realistic 3D visualization. Well there is a number of sw used from point to point. The Building DBM modelling was semi-automated using an extension ...

Photogrammetry: Which is better, grid flight or ROI?

Photogrammetry: Which is better, grid flight or ROI?

“At our most recent sUAS mission we utilized the Mission Planner ROI (Region of Interest) feature to capture aerial images of the subject. The ROI datum allows the user to create a fixed centroid position to orient the camera and figure an equal distance from a point for the flight path. Our goal was to solve some of the distortion ...
