PHOTO REALISTIC 3D MODELING WITH UAV: GEDİK AHMET PASHA
09/02/2013 | M.Uysal,, A.S.Toprak, N.Polat, Afyon Kocatepe Üniversitesi
International Archives of the Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Spatial Information Sciences, Volume XL-5/W2, 2013
Applications: All, Architecture, and UAS / UAV / Drone

“Many of the cultural heritages in the world have been totally or partly destroyed by natural events and human activities such as earthquake, flood and fire until the present day. Cultural heritages are legacy for us as well; it is also a fiduciary for next generation. To deliver this fiduciary to the future generations, cultural heritages have to be protected and registered. There are different methods for applying this registry but Photogrammetry is the most accurate and rapid method. Photogrammetry enables us to registry cultural heritages and generating 3D photo-realistic models. “

INSTRUCTION MANUAL: PHOTOGRAMMETRY AS A NON-CONTACT MEASUREMENT SYSTEM IN LARGE SCALE STRUCTURAL TESTING
08/16/2012 | Anahid A. Behrouzi, Rui Li ; University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Applications: Architecture and Engineering & Science

The authors used PhotoModeler in structural testing. A camera and PhotoModeler were used to extract information about the overall geometry of specimens, as well as the XYZ motion of select points on the structure specimens during testing.

3D-MODELING OF THE BRAZILIAN ANTARCTIC STATION COMANDANTE FERRAZ A VISUALIZATION WITH ANIMATION
10/01/2007 | H. J. B. Erwes, W. S. Prado: Instituto Militar de Engenharia; J. A. Fazan: Instituto Brasileiro de Geografia e Estatística; E. S. Fonseca Jr.: Escola Politécnica da Universidade de São Paulo
XXI International CIPA Symposium, 01-06 October 2007, Athens, Greece
Applications: All and Architecture

Brazil is a consultant member of the Antarctic Treaty since 1983 the construction of the Brazilian Scientific Station Estao Antrtica Comandante Ferraz EACF began during Operation in January 1984.In accordance with the Protocol of Madrid of 1991, which regulates the protection of the environment, the members of Antarctic Treaty are required to document their activities in their occupied areas of the Antarctic Territories by maps, charts, etc. A photogrammetric documentation by orthophotomaps with a scale 1 : 50 of the EACF buildings faades has to be performed.

Tools for Field Surveying
08/17/2003 | Evan H. Shu, FAIA
Architecture Week
Applications: All, Architecture, Magazine Articles, and Surveying

“When architects begin a renovation or addition to a building for which no plans are available, they are often faced with the tedious chore of measuring existing conditions and creating plans from scratch. Not too long ago, the most efficient process involved a three-person team one with a clipboard and two with a measuring tape, calling out distances. But in recent years, several aids have been developed that make it easier, even for one person alone, to make measurements fast and accurately.”

High Tech for Old Houses
09/01/2001 | Jerry Laiserin, FAIA
Old House Journal
Applications: All, Architecture, and Magazine Articles

“The cold glare of a computer screen seems incompatible with the warmth that most folks associate with a fine old house. Yet recent advances in computers and related technologies are providing savvy homeowners and their architects with many new options for documenting and investigating historic buildings. With the help of these high-tech tools, you can identify existing dimensions, locate hidden problems, and assess material conditions faster, more economically, and with greater accuracy.”
