What is Photogrammetry?

Stemming from photography, photogrammetry is an incredibly useful technology in various fields. The technology takes multiple images, taken at different positions, and triangulates points in these images to figure out the location of them in a three-dimensional space. For example, land surveyors utilize this technology when making maps. When dealing with inaccessible places, such as mountains, the surveyors are able to use photogrammetry to perform their measurements. Many modern technologies use photogrammetry, with the major determiner in precision relying on the caliber of the images. If images are poor, there will be holes in the mesh. The more images that you can produce, the greater the accuracy of your scan will be. With the MaxSHOT 3D, users are guaranteed unmatched accuracy.
