New Method for Measuring Movement in Security and Surveillance Video

Security Camera

When you have a sequence of images containing data/evidence spread over several frames recorded from the same position, for example, a series of frames from a fixed security camera, you can use PhotoModeler’s image sequence feature to measure or track objects in the scene over time! Here are some possible uses: Calculating and comparing the […]

Forensic Photogrammetry: A Case Study

Forensic Playground photo repaired

This is a guest article by forensic imaging consultant Mike Mayda. Bio below. Why Use Photogrammetry in Forensics? Photogrammetry can be a very powerful tool in forensic analysis. It is often useful to have an accurate 3D reconstruction of an accident or crime scene, especially in cases where position, distance and perspective are important. Given […]

How to Digitize Templates and Patterns With a Camera

In a number of industries measurements are made of objects and equipment in the field, and then materials are manufactured to fit those existing objects. Some common industries like this are kitchen counter tops, boat covers, enclosures, or flooring, wall cladding, and stairway coverings or lifts. A common approach within these industries is to create […]

Using a Dropcam for Forensics and 3D Measurement

The Dropcam security camera is one of several easy-to-use IP cameras on the market for self-monitoring security systems. This article describes a forensic simulation using Dropcam imagery, and the 3D-from-photos software, PhotoModeler. PhotoModeler is the most comprehensive solution, at any price, for working with images from a variety of sources to produce accurate 3D measurements […]

UAS / UAV Photography for 3D Scanning, Measurement and Modeling

With the proliferation of UAS/UAV (unmanned aircraft systems, unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones) armed with lightweight cameras it has become much easier to capture, scan, measure and 3D model scenes from above. The technique is called photogrammetry. You no longer need to hire an airplane to take aerial photos or purchase expensive aerial photos of […]
