Consume imagery from many cameras and sensor types
Utilize a wide variety of cameras, from smartphones to highly-specialized airborne or terrestrial multidirectional acquisition systems. Take advantage of any available image format and metadata to create 3D models.
Consume laserscan data
Import static or mobile laserscan data. Combine it with photos to get very high accuracy reality meshes.
Create animations, videos, and fly-throughs
Produce high-resolution orthographic and perspective images by rendering snapshots of any size. Set image size and scales using output rulers, scale, and positioning for accurate reuse. Take advantage of the intuitive time-based fly-through and object animation system for quick and easy movie production.
Create high-fidelity images
Use high-fidelity imaging tools to support precision mapping and engineering. Combine imagery in virtually any format and projection.
Create scalable terrain models
Use and display very large terrain models to increase return on investment on large datasets. Display scalable terrain models in a variety of modes, such as smooth shading with shadows, aspect angle, elevation, slope, contours, and more. Synchronize terrain models with source data such as DGN files, point-cloud data, and more.
Employ scalable computing power
Speed production with the ability to use the latest computing systems for desktop and cluster processing units with the ability to leverage GPU computing, multi-core computing, advanced bundle block adjustment, tiling mechanisms, task queuing and monitoring, grid computing, and ultra large project management.
Generate 2D and 3D GIS models
Produce accurate georeferenced 3D models using a full range of geospatial data types including true orthophotos, point clouds, raster digital elevation models and Esri I3S format. Includes an SRS database interface to ensure interoperability with your GIS solution of choice.
Generate 3D CAD models
Produce 3D models using a range of traditional CAD formats such as STL, OBJ or FBX, point cloud formats, as well as innovative multiresolution meshes like the Bentley open 3SM or 3MX to ensure your models are accessible in your modeling environment.
Integrate data from many sources with reality meshes
Enrich reality meshes with additional data like geospatial information, by attaching it to specific parts of the mesh, providing the ability to subsequently search and visualize regions of a mesh based on the associated data.
Integrate positioning data
Leverage ground control points or GPS tags to precisely georeference models. This enables you to geocoordinate your project and accurately measure coordinates, distances, areas, and volumes.
Measure and analyze model data
Save time getting accurate answers by performing precise measurements of distances, volumes, and surface areas directly within the 3D viewing interface.
Model geometry from reality modeling data
Extract break lines, paint lines, surfaces, planes, cylinder, and cylinder center lines from reality meshes and point clouds. Efficiently clip and section point cloud and reality meshes to streamline vector extraction.
Perform automatic aerotriangulation and 3D reconstruction
Fully calibrate all images by automatically identifying the relative position and orientation of each photo. Employ automatic 3D reconstruction, texture mapping, and retexturing of ties and reconstruction constraints to ensure highly accurate models.
Perform automatic photo block alignment on point clouds
During aerotriangulation process, automatically adjust the photo block to fit point clouds, resulting in precise calibration and alignment of the two data sources to create a high-fidelity reality mesh.
Perform simultaneous navigation and viewing in 2D images and a 3D reality mesh
Take advantage of photo navigation to analyze and perform quality assessment by clicking a point in the reality mesh to display full resolution photos and the synchronized 3D scene.
Publish and view Web-ready models
Produce models of any size that are optimized for Web publishing and that can be viewed using a free plugin Web viewer. This enables instant sharing and visualization of 3D models on the Web.
Visualize, analyze, and measure reality meshes prior to final production
Take advantage of the Splat display mode after aerotriangulation to view a draft of the reality mesh for faster insight to perform quality assessment, photo navigation, and measurement tasks.
Visualize, manipulate and edit reality modeling data
Visualize and edit point clouds with billions of points, changing their classification, color and removing or editing points. Manipulate reality meshes and scalable terrain models with hundreds of millions of triangles. Import, retouch, and export meshes in many formats.
