What is Photogrammetry?
Digital 3D models are becoming increasingly popular in a range of fields across education, research and public engagement. A technique known as photogrammetry is frequently used to produce 3D models of real-life objects, partly because it does not require expensive equipment to record the necessary data. Photogrammetry uses multiple digital photographs taken from different angles around an object to construct a 3D model by identifying common reference points between images. Once produced, the 3D files can be put to multiple uses, including being shared online, 3D-printed in various materials, or even used for augmented reality (AR) applications.
An Introduction to Creating 3D Models using Photogrammetry
This course will give a brief introduction to photogrammetry and its various uses, with a particular focus on how you can get started building your own 3D models.
