Reducing Survey Data by Using Photographs for Precise 3D Models

Thursday, May 4, 2017 | 2:00pm-3:00pm Eastern Time

CEDARVILLE Engineering Group created a reality mesh from digital photographs and old survey data to support planning, design and maintenance

The professionals at CEDARVILLE Engineering Group, LLC have developed a workflow to generate an accurate Reality Model created with ContextCapture. The reduction of the digital model into survey features and topography was completed using Bentley’s Civil Software. A key to the success of this workflow was the precision of the model achieved through digital photos tied to ground control. The process saved time, generated instant value, and gave the engineers a true 3D model to advance planning and design.
