Aerial Photography > Dense Point Clouds

Since 2009 I’ve done a fair amount of work with aerial photography, all the while continuing to explore architectural photography and photogrammetry while on the ground. I’ve tried in the past with some success to merge the two things but have found the results to be lacking something. That something, I think, is the hyper dense point cloud – and now I have it pretty much figured out.

Below are tow animated GIF images showing first the point cloud describing our local hospital (which I was contracted to cover with aerial photographs a few years back) and the second is a textured 3-D model of the scan.

Its so amazing to think that the flight over this structure can be reconstructed virtually a few years later with even more options to “fly around”…
