Description

Skyline’s PhotoMesh fully automates the generation of high- resolution, textured, 3D mesh models from standard 2D photographs, offering a significant reduction in cost and time compared to traditional modeling methods. PhotoMesh’s breakthrough technology is based on the highest-performance photogrammetry, computer vision, and computational geometry algorithms. Combining any number of photographs, in a wide range of formats and resolutions, PhotoMesh generates highly-detailed 3D models that can be viewed and queried using TerraExplorer or other 3D, GIS products. PhotoMesh employs elaborate tiling mechanisms to efficiently handle projects with even hundreds of thousands of photos. Running on standard hardware, PhotoMesh can also exploit computer clusters and cloud computing to accelerate database creation. A single project can run simultaneously on hundreds of fuser machines, each processing different build steps and communicating with PhotoMesh Manager.
