Rolling Shutter Effect Important in UAV Photogrammetry

Image of Figure 1

Many are not aware that photographs taken with a UAV are subject to the rolling shutter effect. (Be sure to watch the video at the end for great visual explanation.) The main disadvantage of UAV photogrammetry is that it uses non-metric cameras. These cameras have low-quality movable lenses, a small focal length, and most have a CMOS sensor with an […]

Digital Preservation – Saving our Past to Enrich the Future

The idea of using computer technologies to aid digital visualisation, preservation and reconstruction is not new. Traditionally, manual 3D modelling techniques were used to reconstruct various historical events, object or people. While being a useful tool in visualization, manual 3D modelling techniques could do just as much when it concerned itself with complex artefacts or sites due to the issues […]
