Photography: A Viable Measurement-Gathering Technique



Over the past few years, several software companies have been focused on advancing the ability of generating rich, reliable measurement data utilizing digital imagery. This methodology, also known as photogrammetry, is one in which three-dimensional data points can be located, relative to one another, by projecting vectors from common features found in photographs through 3D space.
Though this method can serve as an alternative to traditional measurement techniques on its own, in certain scenarios our experience has been that to achieve optimal results, a combination of photogrammetry and highly accurate reference measurements should be the standard.
DJS is currently evaluating the many software solutions available today, with the goal of adding yet another reliable, proven approach to gathering critical measurement data – the foundation of the analysis process.
