I’m looking for photogrammetry software and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations?
I read the responses to “Industry Thoughts on Photogrammetry Software” which were quite helpful, but as the indented use would be more for buildings and landscape-scale features, I was wondering if there were other options I should consider.
I intend to use photogrammetry primarily for documentation of historic sites, mainly built structures such as buildings, bridges, boats, industrial equipment etc. Most of the photography would be ground based, but I’d like to be able to use drones to survey taller structures and landscapes. As some of our historic sites are undergoing riverbank and shoreline erosion, I was hoping I could use photogrammetry to monitor and measure erosion from year to year (in addition to our current field surveys). Documentation is the primarily goal, so the ability to pull fairly accurate measurements from the models would also be useful, so perhaps something that can use ground control points.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be most appreciated.
