Software to generate full 3D “reality mesh” representations from Leica’s airborne photogrammetric imagery
Leica Geosystems is incorporating Bentley’s Acute3D reality modelling software into its oblique airborne imaging solutions for both unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and piloted aircraft. The software will be used to generate full 3D “reality mesh” representations from its airborne photogrammetric imagery.
Through reality modelling, observations of existing conditions are processed into representations for contextual alignment – for instance, within design modelling and construction modelling environments, in addition to mapping. Rather than generating a voluminous cloud of discrete points, Acute3D produces a 3D reality mesh, which, according to Bentley aligns the real-world context in mapping and infrastructure applications.
“Acute3D’s breakthrough capabilities make it possible to now produce true 3D models, even in engineering formats, directly from digital photography, with unlimited scalability,” Styli Camateros, Bentley Systems senior vice president, said. “Doing so through Leica Geosystems’ new oblique imagery acquisition systems provides the market with a uniquely advantageous platform, precision-engineered from flight to model!”
