Spectacular Photogrammetry

1

If you’re an old hand at 3D technology, chances are that photogrammetry doesn’t often impress you anymore. Well, prepare to be impressed again.

The Oddviz collective specializes in photogrammetry for interactive 3D models and videos. Though their process is common, their results are not: For a recent project, they used 10,000 photographs of the Sofa Hotel to generate a dynamic video that shows you the hotel as if you were unrestricted by line of sight. Click play and you’ll see a dynamic view of the hotel moving between the inside and out, down to the individual objects in every room, in all of its incredible visual complexity.

As for their inspiration, Oddviz explains that they wanted to remove sections in the manner of “medical imaging practices. This way, interior becomes observable with an optically impossible perspective.”

    A well designed DICOM-like viewer for AEC purposes would be welcomed by this writer. The concept could transferred to Lidar or photogrammetry -it’s really about moving through a fixed object, slice by slice, allowing for the easy export of scaled 2D images along a fixed path. I’m surprised we haven’t seen this already from FARO, Leica, Trimble, Z+F, Topcon etc.
