Aerial Photogrammetry

Massing Study from Aerial Photos

Massing Study from Aerial Photos

While I was working in France for Innova, we did some photogrammetry using shots taken from a helicopter. Some of this was mapping related for transportation studies, and some was more three dimensional in nature.  It is not a market that I have pursued here in the US – it was very difficult to do in those days and required a fair amount of support from ground based control data derived from theodolites and such.  Recently I did an experiment using an aerial photo that I shot of the Blackfriar’s theater in Staunton and integrated it into a photogrammetric model and found the whole thing considerable more accurate and easy to do than I rememeber it was 18 years ago. Shown here is a cut sheet from a project completed with Innova back in the early days.
