3D Modeling Using Structure From Motion (SFM): Applied Terrestrial, UAS, and Aerial Photography

This is a past event.

This is a past event.

Structure from Motion (SFM) is a technique for 3D modeling of the Earth surface and various objects using multiple images. SFM is built on classical photogrammetric concepts but involves advanced image processing. SFM is a fully automated process and takes any images - from hi-end aerial photographs to smartphone pictures.  SFM produces dense point clouds rendered with the pixel colors from the source images which is further used to build seamless, photorealistic measurable 3D surface of an object or scene. SFM can be used in various tasks related to 3D modeling from rapid prototyping to precise object modeling. The talk is focused on application of SFM in unmanned aerial system (UAS) photography, terrestrial and aerial photogrammetry for environmental studies, anthropology, civil engineering, asset management, mining industry, road accidents, etc.
