Hybrid processing – RPAS & Scanning combined
Hybrid processing in ContextCapture can combine the power of Remotely Piloted Aircraft or survey drone data with terrestrial 3D laser scanning to deliver engineering level accuracy to your 3D model. With the finest details captured in high precision clarity, your model represents reality at every angle.
Tailored to your project needs
Depending on your project and organisational needs, you can choose from ContextCapture or ContextCapture Center. If you are working on an individual desktop computer and you have projects that require less than 300 gigapixels of imagery and/or 500 million points from a laser scanner, ContextCapture is the perfect fit.
If your projects are larger, or you wish to utilize parallel processing and multiple desktops and servers to speed processing, or you want access to the software development kit to develop custom solutions, ContextCapture Center is perfect for your needs.
Utilise a wide variety of cameras, from smartphones to highly-specialized airborne or terrestrial multidirectional acquisition systems. Take advantage of any available image format and metadata to create 3D models.
Create animations, videos, and fly-throughs
Produce high-resolution orthographic and perspective images by rendering snapshots of any size. Set image size and scales using output rulers, scale, and positioning for accurate reuse. Take advantage of the intuitive time-based fly-through and object animation system for quick and easy movie production.
Create high-fidelity images
Use high-fidelity imaging tools to support precision mapping and engineering. Combine imagery in virtually any format and projection.
Create scalable terrain models
Use and display very large terrain models to increase return on investment on large datasets. Display scalable terrain models in a variety of modes, such as smooth shading with shadows, aspect angle, elevation, slope, contours, and more. Synchronise terrain models with source data such as DGN files, point-cloud data, and more.
Generate 2D and 3D GIS models
Produce accurate georeferenced 3D models using a full range of geospatial data types including true orthophotos, point clouds, raster digital elevation models and Esri I3S format. Includes an SRS database interface to ensure interoperability with your GIS solution of choice.
Generate 3D CAD models
Produce 3D models using a range of traditional CAD formats such as STL, OBJ or FBX, point cloud formats, as well as innovative multiresolution meshes like the Bentley open 3SM or 3MX to ensure your models are accessible in your modelling environment.
Integrate data from many sources with reality meshes
Enrich reality meshes with additional data like geospatial information, by attaching it to specific parts of the mesh, providing the ability to subsequently search and visualise regions of a mesh based on the associated data.
Integrate positioning data
Leverage ground control points or GPS tags to precisely geo-reference models. This enables you to geocoordinate your project and accurately measure coordinates, distances, areas, and volumes.
Measure and analyse model data
Save time getting accurate answers by performing precise measurements of distances, volumes, and surface areas directly within the 3D viewing interface.
Model geometry from reality modelling data
Extract break lines, paint lines, surfaces, planes, cylinder, and cylinder centre lines from reality meshes and point clouds. Efficiently clip and section point cloud and reality meshes to streamline vector extraction.
Perform automatic aero-triangulation and 3D reconstruction
Fully calibrate all images by automatically identifying the relative position and orientation of each photo. Employ automatic 3D reconstruction, texture mapping, and retexturing of ties and reconstruction constraints to ensure highly accurate models.
Publish and view Web-ready models
Produce models of any size that are optimized for Web publishing, and that can be viewed using a free plugin Web viewer. This enables instant sharing and visualisation of 3D models on the Web.
Visualise, manipulate and edit reality modelling data
