    Photogrammetry is a quick and easy way to produce visually stunning and relatively accurate 3D models of existing conditions. Many photogrammetry classes focus on models of small objects. This class will explain the basics of photogrammetry and some tips you can use to get the best results out of your photos, especially when trying to create large background models that encompass multiple buildings, streets, trees, and so on. We’ll discuss sources of imagery and their pros and cons. We’ll review image quality, lighting, camera angles, quantity, and other similar topics in order to capture all the little details. We’ll discuss the process of bringing these source images into ReCap Photo software, as well as processing, scaling, decimation, and so on. Finally we’ll discuss how to bring photogrammetry models into other programs such as Revit software, ReCap software, Civil 3D software, and InfraWorks software.
