Agisoft is a powerful tool used for reconstructing 2-D imagery into a 3-D model. This software can be used to build 3-D figures of statues, aerial photography and mapping, and much more. Unfortunately, Agisoft is not free but you can use a 30-day trial for the professional version. Downloading this software this week should provide you with plenty of time to complete the final project.
In this assignment, you will download and install Agisoft Metashape (called Agisoft Photoscan in the reading) and reconstruct a small set of images. This can take a few minutes to a few hours depending on the power of your computer. Once complete you will answer a few questions and upload all the files in a zip file. Download 7zip if you do not have a file compression software – 7Zip download link (Links to an external site.)
You will also need to use Google Earth Pro in order to complete this assignment, of course, this is a free program available in all operating systems. Download Google Earth Here (Links to an external site.)
If you do not have access to a personal computer (ie. you use university computers full time) please contact me immediately so we can arrange a meeting to compile the photos on my pc.
