One of the best photogrammetry specialists in Scotland, practicing the art since 2014

From civil construction works to the preservation and recording of historic buildings, drone Photogrammetry is underused and misunderstood. Because of the many low quality models out there, site managers and those looking to record structures may think that it is not possible to recreate accurate on screen models with the quality desired. Fear not, because the team at Drone Media Scotland are working daily, creating high quality models, and the benefits to those commissioning us are very clear.

Have a look at the models below, use your mouse to rotate, zoom, and then send us an email with your ideas!

Take a look at the sea defense model below, this is regularly re-captured and changes are recorded from previous models

Below, a highly accurate 3d mixed drone and DSLR captured 3d model of a historic broch in Sutherland

Below, a quarry in the Cairngorm's area of Scotland. This model was also created and exported as a high resolution ortho rectified image, this was printed in large format and is great for operations.

You may be here to see if drone captured photogrammetry is good for your business, send us an email and we can discuss this.

So what is drone Photogrammetry, and indeed DSLR captured Photogrammetry?

Photogrammetry, in simple terms, is a technique used to create 3D models or measurements of objects and environments by analyzing photographs or images taken from different angles. It involves extracting data from these images and using mathematical algorithms to reconstruct the 3D geometry and appearance of the subject.

Photogrammetry has several benefits for various industries, including:

  1. Construction and Architecture: Photogrammetry can be used to create accurate 3D models of construction sites, buildings, and architectural structures. These models can aid in design, planning, and visualization, as well as monitoring progress throughout the construction process.

  2. Surveying and Mapping: Photogrammetry enables the creation of detailed topographic maps and surveys. By using aerial or ground-based imagery, it becomes possible to generate accurate elevation data, measure distances, and map large areas more efficiently than traditional surveying methods.

  3. Cultural Heritage and Archaeology: Photogrammetry allows for the preservation and documentation of historical sites, artifacts, and monuments. By creating detailed 3D models, archaeologists and conservators can study and analyze these objects or locations without risking damage or degradation.

  4. Film and Entertainment: Photogrammetry plays a crucial role in visual effects and computer-generated imagery (CGI) in the film and entertainment industry. By capturing real-world objects or environments using photogrammetry, artists can create highly realistic and detailed virtual assets for use in movies, video games, and virtual reality experiences.

  5. Environmental Monitoring: Drones equipped with cameras can capture aerial imagery for photogrammetry, enabling the monitoring and assessment of environmental changes. This data can be used for ecosystem analysis, land management, and disaster response, allowing for informed decision-making.

It is important to know that the team at Drone Media Scotland are equipped with full frame DSLR's and terrestrial cameras are also capable of creating 3D models, so if you have artifacts that are inside buildings, we can recreate their digital twins also!
