    Are you contemplating adding aerial photogrammetry as a service to your business but you’re hesitant due to the high monetary investment? Would you like to purchase a multirotor (drone) but are afraid of buying more than what you need or, worse, the wrong things? Do you already have a multirotor and would like to know what you need to start doing aerial photogrammetry? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this lecture is for you. We’ll see what the bare minimum is needed to get into aerial photogrammetry in terms of both hardware, multirotor features, and software. Once we lay down the essentials, we’ll explore potential upgrades, like first-person video, propellers, and different antenna types. In addition, we’ll go over how to convert your photos into 3D objects and point clouds using ReCap Photo software, and see what we can do with this data by going over various industry workflows and the software used, such as, ReCap Pro software, 3ds Max software, InfraWorks software, and AutoCAD Map 3D software.
