Loomis Faceworx: model a 3D head from two 2D images Looxis Faceworx is a free 3D modeling program that can construct a textured 3D model of a person’s head out of two 2D photos (one from the front, “mugshot” style, and the other profile style from the side). With this program you can create a modeled 3D head and then export it as an .OBJ file for use in other 3D modeling software such as Sketchup or Blender. As a starting point you will need two well light photographs of the subject whose head you want to model, and, once imported into Looxis Faceworx, the process will require a degree of manual intervention on your part to best map your subject’s phase/features onto the 3D model.
XXII International Society for Photogrammetry & Remote Sensing Congress - Application Possibility of Smartphone as Payload for Photogrammetric UAV System Smartphone can not only be operated under 3G network environment anytime and any place but also cost less than the existing photogrammetric UAV since it provides high-resolution image, 3D location and attitude data on a real-time basis from a variety of built-in sensors. This study is aimed to assess the feasibility of smartphone as a payload for photogrammetric UAV system. Prior to such assessment, a smartphone-based photogrammetric UAV system application was developed, through which real-time image, location and attitude data was obtained using smartphone under both static and dynamic conditions. Subsequently the accuracy assessment on the location and attitude data obtained and sent by this system was conducted.
Match Photo: Matching models to photos Matching an existing 3D model to a photo's context Use the matching process to match an existing 3D model to a photo's context. For example, you might have a model of a house that contains an addition and want to place that within a photo to show the change.
ARC 3D Webservice Table of Contents ARC3D is a tool for creating 3D models out of a set of images. To create a 3D reconstruction with ARC3D you need to: Free photogrammetric digital reconstruction EDIT: I forgot to put this here: the post below is a author’s guest post by Peter Falkingham of the School of Earth, Atmospheric and Environmental Science, University of Manchester. Enjoy! This blog post coincides with my latest paper on open source photogrammetry software that appears in Palaeontologia Electronica yesterday. I want to briefly summarize the paper, but also to tell you about where the technology seems to be heading, and try and communicate some of my excitement.
Systems, Inc Before describing the operation of the V-STARS system, a brief introduction to photogrammetry is provided for those who are unfamiliar with the technology. The fundamental principle used by photogrammetry is triangulation. By taking photographs from at least two different locations, so-called "lines of sight" can be developed from each camera to points on the object. These lines of sight (sometimes called rays owing to their optical nature) are mathematically intersected to produce the 3-dimensional coordinates of the points of interest. Triangulation is also the principle used by theodolites for coordinate measurement.
Pixdim for Sketchup photogrammetry PIXDIM, a photogrammetry measuring plugin for Google SketchUp that will transform your digital camera into a measuring device. QUALUP SAS provides breakthrough photogrammetry technology that enhances architects, designers and engineer's productivity. Based on the established "RhinoPhoto" that is a plug-in for Rhino3D, Qualup have now expanded the range to support Google SketchUp v7. As the UK experts for RhinoPhoto, we can now help all you SketchUp users to measure and digitise your buildings into SketchUp 7/8 on a Microsoft Windows XP or Vista 32bit platform.

Sensors & Systems - 3D Laser Mapping Offers Innovative Visualisation Software Details Jan 15 2014 by 3D Laser Mapping 3D Laser Mapping has announced new software that makes it much easier to access and view laser scanned data. Sensor Fusion We propose an automatic procedure for combining digital images and laser scanner data in order to have a full representation of a scene. In particular, this procedure will serve photogrammetric close range applications such as 3D digital preservation and documentation of cultural heritages by generating comprehensive virtual reality models. Our method is based on a bundle block adjustment for the orientation estimation of generated images from laser data and camera images by means of an optimized Structure-from-Motion reconstruction method. The Art of Photogrammetry: Introduction to Software and Hardware Our brains perceive depth by comparing the images that our eyes see. If you alternatively close each of your eyes, you will notice that the object you see will seem to shift left and right. An object that is closer, will seem to shift more than an object that is farther away. That's stereoscopic vision, and the core concept behind creating the illusion of three-dimensional objects and space from two 2D images.
Photogrammetry – Creating 3D Digital Models with Smartphones Emergency response can benefit from agencies having access to first-hand information. A new application developed by UNSW enables people at the scene of an emergency to scan their environment using a smartphone and receive a 3D model in seconds which they can send to the relevant authorities. The Faculty of Built Environment and College of Fine Arts have created a new application that enables people to use their Smart Phone to create a 3D model of their immediate environment. The application is particularly beneficial in emergency situations, given that members of the public at the scene of an emergency can rapidly capture vital information and make this information available to the emergency services to improve response and recovery.

SynthEyes Camera Tracker - Andersson Technologies LLC What is SynthEyes? SynthEyes is a Windows, Mac, or Linux software application for 3-D camera-tracking, also known as match-moving, which is widely used in film, television, commercial, and music video post-production. SynthEyes can look at the image sequence from your live-action shoot and determine how the real camera moved during the shoot, what the field of view (~focal length) was, and where various features were in 3-D, so that you can create computer-generated imagery that exactly fits into the shot. What can SynthEyes do for me?
