I wanted to test out the 3D modelling capabilities just using the drone/UAV, it needed to be a free-standing structure to enable the drone to gather enough images with overlap.
The shipwreck near Portsmouth sprang to mind, the location is awkward to get to but luckily the Mavic Pro is an easy fit in a rucksack. The light was fading but I was able to capture some high quality imagery, as this wasn’t a commercial project there was no need for any coordinated control, although the drone does record basic latitude and longitude.
I used 123 of the images and processed at a medium resolution for online sharing, below is the result which is impressive, considering that with the software there are 2 higher levels of processing but this would make it slow loading over the internet.
If you require any further information or have a project in mind, please do not hesitate to get in touch…
