Photogrammetry from 2 (or more) spike shots...
I currently use a program to match features from 2 or more photos taken of the same scene at different angles. Once I have a reference measurement from something that's visible in all photos, I'm able to pull measurements for features on any plane as well as connect points and build a 3d model of the scene which can be imported into sketchup. It would be nice if this type of functionality was incorporated into spike, it would remove the need to take a manual measurement since spike knows the distance to the target.
Great idea Jed, being a Photogrammetrist I realize the functionality and usefulness of what you speak of. That said, automatic tie points is not on our road map. I appreciate the feedback.
Hi Jed, yes this is the type of thing we are looking into. What package are you currently using to make 3D models from images?
