Agisoft Metashape (formerly PhotoScan)

Agisoft Metashape is a stand-alone software product that performs photogrammetric processing of digital images and generates 3D spatial data

to be used in GIS applications, cultural heritage documentation, and visual effects production as well as for indirect measurements of objects of various scales.

Wisely implemented digital photogrammetry technique enforced with computer vision methods

results in smart automated processing system that, on the one hand, can be managed by a newcomer in the field of photogrammetry, yet, on the other hand, has a lot to offer to a specialist who can adjust the workflow to numerous specific tasks and different types of data.

Throughout various case studies Metashape proves to produce quality and accurate results.

 Licensing Options

Metashape is a proprietary software solution. The software and documentation are supplied electronically. You will receive a registration code by e-mail after your order is processed. This registration code allows to convert a demo Metashape version into a fully featured registered version.

Agisoft offers rehostable node-locked and floating licenses. Metashape license is NOT time-limited. Metashape license includes 12 month of e-mail based technical support and entitles the licensee to free updates of the software up to the version 1.9.x (see the current released version number at Installer page). To support education in the field of photogrammetry, Agisoft offers educational licenses to educational institutions.
Please remember that Metashape license does not allow to provide access to the software to the third parties, in particular, over the Internet, including, without limitation, in connection with a web hosting, commercial time sharing, service bureau, or similar service.

Stand-Alone License

Stand-Alone license is a rehostable node-locked license, i.e. one license allows to activate the program at one machine only, however, the license can be transferred to a different computer if needed. Stand-Alone license allows to use Metashape software in all kinds of paid and unpaid projects. The license is available both to individuals and legal entities, such as companies, firms, museums, reseach institutions, governmental institutions, etc.

Floating License

Floating license allows to install the program on as many computers as desired and run it, at any one time, on as many systems as the number of licenses purchased indicates. One computing machine shall be designated as the “license server”; the license server utility installed on it will manage license distribution across the network of computers where the program has been installed. Floating license is available for Agisoft Metashape Professional Edition only.

Educational License

Educational licenses (rehostable node-locked) and Educational Floating licenses are available exclusively to accredited educational institutions, their employees and students of such institutions. Only officially accredited educational institutions are eligible to obtain Agisoft Metashape educational licenses. This includes: universities, colleges, junior colleges, scientific and technical schools, vocational schools, and correspondence schools. Educational or Educational Floating licenses can also be purchased by students and officially employed teaching and research staff of officially accredited educational institutions.
Any educational license prohibits all commercial uses of the software. Educational / Educational Floating and Stand-Alone / Floating licenses differ legally but are technically identical.
