Photogrammetry is the use of photography to measure distances and record surface data of any object by using cameras and imaging software.

Recent technological advances in digital cameras, processing power and imaging software have enabled us to measure and record extremely detailed surface data.  This data can be used to record important subjects such as archeological finds, historical artefacts or important architecture, whether for posterity or to facilitate repairs or alterations.

Most of our work revolves around the recording of buildings and structures prior to alterations or extensions.  One of our current photogrammetry projects is; however, to create a 3D model of a timber frieze from Oriel College, Oxford.

As can be seen from the above video clip, colour has now been added to our 3D mesh and we just have some tidying up work to complete before the final model can be issued to the client.

We take pride in all of the work we undertake; however, I think it is safe to say that we thoroughly enjoyed working on this particular piece of cultural heritage.

For any museums with limited resources who would like to make their collections more widely accessible in digital format; please call us on 01327 361664 or contact us and we will do our very best to help you.
