PhotoMesh – Fully automated, scalable photogrammetry

High-performance 3D reconstruction that transforms photos into quality, 2D and 3D geospatial data

UAV-Construction2

Combining photos in a wide range of formats, PhotoMesh generates highly-detailed 3D meshes, orthophotos, point clouds, elevation models, and more. PhotoMesh’s breakthrough 2D and 3D mapping technology is based on the highest-performance photogrammetry, computer vision, and computational geometry algorithms.

PhotoMesh employs elaborate tiling mechanisms to efficiently handle projects with even hundreds of thousands of photos. Running on standard hardware, PhotoMesh can also exploit computer clusters and cloud computing to vastly accelerate the build by running a single project simultaneously on hundreds of fuser machines.

  • 2D Mapping​

Transform aerial and ground photos and Lidar collections into city-scale, digital twin models with advanced color balancing and high-quality texturing, in a range of 3D mesh and point cloud formats. With its survey-grade, geo-referencing accuracy, PhotoMesh can be used for urban planning, infrastructure and engineering project management, inspection and 3D GIS applications.

PhotoMesh supports close-range photogrammetry, producing point cloud and mesh models with sub-millimeter accuracy. These models can be leveraged to perform virtual industrial inspection and asset management that remove the risk of human error, at a fraction of the time and cost of on-site, traditional inspection methods. PhotoMesh’s range of 3D outputs can also be enablers of customized AI and machine learning analysis tools.

Fully automated, high quality generation of multispectral true-orthophotos, Digital Surface Models (DSM) and Digital Terrain Models (DTM). PhotoMesh 2D mapping outputs can be used in a broad range of industries, including agriculture and urban mapping, as well as serve as enablers of customized AI-powered analysis tools.

High Quality

PhotoMesh generates a full-3D mesh model that faithfully reproduces even small-scale details such as cars, trees, fences, and walls - all with advanced color balancing and high-quality texturing.

Production Automation

Robust REST APIs allow developers to create, monitor, and manage project queues and to automate PhotoMesh production flows on local machines, remote servers, and the cloud.

Scalability

PhotoMesh efficiently handles even hundreds of thousands of photos using an elaborate tiling mechanism. PhotoMesh exploits multi-computer architecture (fusers) to further accelerate database creation, running a single project simultaneously on hundreds of machines. 

High Performance

PhotoMesh can run its efficient algorithms fluidly on standard GPUs, or exploit multi-core and multi-computer processing to further accelerate database creation. A single project can run simultaneously on hundreds of fuser machines, processing tens of square kilometers per day.

Cloud Ready

PhotoMesh can exploit computer clusters and cloud computing to run a single project simultaneously on hundreds of fuser machines. Sharing the workload involved in generating PhotoMesh output vastly accelerates the build process.

Usability

Intuitive GUI and powerful, versatile tools for accurate evaluation and adjustment of your input data and AT, including: a coverage map, photo inter-connection map, Lidar data integration, control points, photo projection on terrain and Lidar and much more.
