What is Photogrammetry?

Photogrammetry is the science of extracting 3D data from a series of overlapping photographs.

The basic principle behind photogrammetry is simple: by understanding how a camera works, we can reverse-engineer the process and use images to recreate objects as 3D models. A camera is used to take high-resolution photos of an object or landscape. The photos are then analyzed using special software to create a 3D model of the object or landscape. This process can be used to measure the size and shape of an object or create a detailed map of an area.

With modern software advancements, it is possible to perform photogrammetry on a desktop computer or even a smartphone.
