The Case for Photogrammetry in Maritime Surveys
12/01/2018 | Jean Sans
The Report -
Applications: All, Engineering & Science, Industrial Measurement, Magazine Articles, and Surveying

“In this interview, we talk to Jean Sans of Experts-Yachts about the uses of photogrammetry in maritime surveys. An early adopter of the technology, Jean has been employing photogrammetry in his practice since 1983.”

An evaluation of three-dimensional photogrammetric and morphometric techniques for estimating volume and mass in Weddell seals Leptonychotes weddellii
01/10/2018 | Roxanne S. Beltran , Brandi Ruscher-Hill, Amy L. Kirkham, Jennifer M. Burns
Applications: All and Biology

Body mass dynamics of animals can indicate critical associations between extrinsic factors and population vital rates. Photogrammetry can be used to estimate mass of individuals in species whose life histories make it logistically difficult to obtain direct body mass measurements.

Physical scale model testing of a flexible membrane wave energy converter: Videogrammetric analysis of membrane operation
12/01/2017 | Jarrah Orphin, Alan Fleming & Cam Algie
International Journal of Marine Energy
Applications: All and Engineering & Science

Renewable energy, aside from the environmental benefits, is increasingly making economic sense. Wave energy is a viable form of renewable energy. In small-scale testing of wave energy converters (WEC), a key focus is on characterising the relationship between the primary converter and simulated power take-off system. If primary conversion is via the deformation of a flexible material, this task often requires non-contact measurement. In this paper, the authors introduce the development of an underwater non-contact measurement technique called videogrammetry, and its novel application to characterise the primary converter operation of a flexible membrane WEC.

Photogrammetry Accelerates Creation of Marine Enclosures
08/14/2017 | Jerry Fireman
Marine Link
Applications: All and Industrial Measurement

Photogrammetry helps reduce time to create marine enclosures and covers from 3 days to 4 hours.

Costa Marine Canvas specializes in producing high end, custom marine furniture, soft goods, enclosures and covers. One of the most difficult of those tasks is creating windscreen enclosures for large and complex fly-bridge structures. A typical flybridge enclosure might have five 5-foot tall panels, ranging in various lengths, and combined to be 20 feet or more. While basic in appearance, each panel consists of 20 or more complex pieces of various materials fastened together by adhesives and sewing to fit and fasten to the bridge structure.

Extracting Accurate Measurements from Single Surveillance Camera Images
06/15/2017 | Eugene Liscio
Applications: All and Forensics & Accident Recon.

PhotoModeler can solve important information about the single camera and the scene at the time of the crime, by using the image captured at the time of the crime, and combining that with 3D data captured after the crime.

In this paper a detailed method is described using PhotoModeler to ‘marry’ the detail of a 3D laser scan with one still from a security camera, and then exported to 3D Studio Max for further analysis.

Survey of Ely Bridge, Monticello, Iowa
12/19/2016 | Harold Schuch, PE
Applications: All, Engineering & Science, and Surveying

The purpose of this project was to assess the feasibility to restore the Ely Bridge in Monticello, Iowa, a structure listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The author was invited by the Department of Civil Engineering of the University of Colorado, Denver, to create a three-dimensional scaled wire frame of the bridge to be used in a finite-element stress analysis. This report describes the effort of creating this digital three-dimensional wire frame, using photogrammetric tools. This

LiDAR Magazine
Applications: All and Archaeology

In this light-hearted article, the author with a few quick photos demonstrates 3d capture of an in-situ Camarasaurus bone in Yellowstone National Park. Note that modern PhotoModeler Scanner is capable of producing the result shown at the end.

3D-documentation and analysis of rock carvings
09/02/2016 | Mette Rabitz, University of Gothenburg
Why 3D? seminar - Moesgaard Museum
Applications: All and Archaeology

Rock carvings are disappearing and there is an urgent need to document them. Traditionally these were documented with photography and 2D techniques, but a full 3d photogrammetric approach records more of the condition, and records the 3d shape of the rock surface and the varying depth of the carvings.
