Videogrammetry: How to create a realistic and accurate 3D model from video made with mobile phone

A surveyor documenting infrastructure often faces the problem of arriving on the field too late, when the infrastructure is already backfield. Meaning that infrastructure measurements are not made accurately or they cannot be made at all. When the measurements need to be corrected, the surveyors have a lot of trouble finding it under the asphalt, which is a very expensive solution. A major problem that arises is also the possibility of cutting an electricity cable or a water pipe.

In this webinar we will show you how to avoid these problems and solve them before they happen with 3Dsurvey, where we can use videogrammetry to map infrastructure and create a realistic 3D model. This workflow makes it quick and easy to capture where a surveyor is not urgently needed.

We’ll teach you how to use videogrammetry to create accurate 3D models. You will learn a practical workflow on how to perform videogrammetry, process the data in 3Dsurvey and check its accuracy. We will focus on 4 different examples:

  • the construction of a city drinking water
  • the measurment of a material pile
  • interior mapping example
  • modelling of our CEO’s head (for this one we are especialy looking forward :))

Meet your host – Vid

  • 4 years of traditional land surveying experience
  • 8+ years of experience in aerial photogrammetry
  • 300+ drone photogrammetry projects

Vid has always been fascinated with technology and its potential in making our lives easier.

Having joined our team as a student, he has dedicated himself to research and development, and has since more than earned his current position of technical director.

I’ve always been a little obsessed with the prospect of doing things smarter … and nothing pleases me more than finding new, better, and faster ways of doing my job.

In that sense, transitioning from traditional surveying methods to modern aerial photogrammetry was a completely natural and logical progression. And not just for Vid, but for our whole team.

There are just so many moving parts you have to take into account … I mean, it’s not just about going out into the field, taking some measurements, and then simply finishing up with the job.

There’s planning, safety concerns, accuracy, time spent in the field, gear, resources, teamwork, not to mention reaching your business goals. And there are ways of optimising those processes.

There are better tools, plans, and techniques. And if a more efficient and productive way is possible, wouldn’t you take it?

Optimal control over your workflows and processes, better measuring accuracy, and significant improvements in productivity are just some of the perks to be gained in terms of generally upgrading the way we survey.

Today, we can safely reach and measure what used to be almost unreachable. We can complete more projects in less time. We can do so much more without even being in the field. There’s so much potential to be taken advantage of.

Change is only scary if it’s for the worse. As long as it benefits us, we should strive towards it. And if I can contribute to helping my surveying colleagues work smarter, and achieve their goals a little faster, while even earning them some extra free time to top it all off … I’ll just do my best!
