From Holiday Photos to Architectural 3D Point Cloud Model

Last year I took a long and well deserved holiday to Europe with my wife. Unbeknownst to her I packed my Phantom Vision 2+ drone in my backpack to take some holiday snaps from altitude of the places we went to visit.

Being a building nerd (though not an architectural nerd) I took some time out to take some panoramic shots of some of the more interesting buildings we came across. This weekend I finally found some time to create 3D point cloud reconstructions of them using our photogrammetry software.

This video shows the results of the photos I took at The Royal Museum of the Armed Forces and Military History. It is a military museum that occupies the two northernmost halls of the historic complex in Cinquantenaire Park in Brussels, Belgium.

I never get sick of using this software and the results it delivers.
