Getting Started With PhotoMesh - Tutorial #1

This video takes you step by step through the basic PhotoMesh workflow, from the loading of standard photos into a project, all the way to the building of the mesh model and review of the project results.

Loading Photos of different data types - Tutorial #2

This video demonstrates how to load into PhotoMesh photos with varying levels of metadata, ranging from no positioning and orientation information to fully trusted input. PhotoMesh adjusts the robustness of its aerotriangulation calculations based on the accuracy of the inputted data.

Skyline’s PhotoMesh fully automates the generation of high-resolution, textured, 3D mesh models from standard 2D photographs, offering a significant reduction in cost and time compared to traditional modeling methods.

Know your Data - Setting the proper AT Area - Tutorial  #3

This video demonstrates some of the powerful tools PhotoMesh offers for reviewing and assessing aerotriangulation (AT) results. These tools allow necessary adjustments and corrections to be performed before proceeding with the rest of the build, so that optimal mesh model results are achieved with minimum rebuilding.

Setting Build Parameters - Tutorial #4

This video demonstrates how to set the Build parameters and manage the fusers.

 Loading photos from a Video file - Tutorial #6

This video demonstrates how to build a project from a full motion video file with no camera and position information.

Using Ground Control Points - Tutorial #7

This video demonstrates how to use ground control points and check points to accurately position a model.


3DML Classification and Enhanced BIM Capabilities - TE for Desktop 

This video demonstrates many of the powerful capabilities TerraExplorer offers for working with classified 3DML and BIM, ranging from spatial and attribute queries, to attribute-based display and colorization of the layers.

Export 3DML to Individual Models

This video demonstrates the wide range of options offered by TerraExplorer for exporting polygonal areas of a mesh layer, e.g., buildings, to individual OBJ models to enable you to easily extract precisely the areas that you need.

Advanced Point Cloud Capabilities

This video demonstrates some of the advanced capabilities offered by TerraExplorer for styling point clouds based on attribute information, as well as the use of the new buffer query tool for implementation and testing of security buffers around high-risk structures.

Comparison tools

Learn how to use TerraExplorer’s new mesh layer and elevation comparison tools to visualize changes over time, compare before and after imagery and elevation data for damage assessment, and more.

TerraExplorer v7.0.2 - 3DML Style By Attribute

This tutorial demonstrates how to apply different properties such as line or fill color to a 3DML based on its feature’s attribute values, to enable you to easily identify and categorize different areas of the 3DML.

Imagery and Snapshot Comparison Tools Tutorial

This video tutorial walks you through the Imagery Comparison and Snapshot Comparison tools found in Skyline TerraExplorer Pro version 6.6.1. Learn step-by-step how to dynamically compare between two images of the same location or between two versions of a scene in the 3D Window for enhanced 3D terrain analysis.


Shadow Analysis Tutorial

Learn all about Skyline’s shadow analysis tools in v6.6.1 of TerraExplorer Pro. Just follow this step-by-step tutorial to see how to use the Global Shadow, Selection Shadow, and Shadow Queries to visualize and analyze shadows on your 3D scene.

Easy publishing from desktop to web with SkylineGlobe Server

This short introduction to the data publishing process describes how to collect and prepare your data in TerraExplorer Pro and then publish it to SkylineGlobe Server, for viewing and analysis in TerraExplorer for Web or TerraExplorer Desktop.


SkylineGlobe Server - Auto-scanning folders

SkylineGlobe Server allows you to scan the data source periodically for changes. When a data source is auto-scanned, the

following updates are made to SGS:

All new layers are automatically added, all layers deleted from data source are automatically removed and all previously published layers that were modified are updated in SGS.
