AGISOFT Metashape (formerly known as Photoscan) is a cutting edge software solution, with its engine core driving photogrammetry to its ultimate limits, while the whole system is designed to deliver industry specific results relying on machine learning techniques for post-processing and analysis tasks.
The software allows to process images from RGB or multispectral cameras, including multi-camera systems, into dense point clouds, textured polygonal models, georeferenced true orthomosaics and DSMs/DTMs.
Further post-processing enables to eliminate shadows and texture artifacts from the models, calculate vegetation indices and extract information for farming equipment action maps, automatically classify dense point clouds, etc.
IATEC Plant Solutions can now share its extensive experience in the reality capture & photogrammetry to help clients select, customize, purchase and maintain the entire range of AGISOFT products:
Processing of various types of imagery: aerial (nadir, oblique) & close-range.
Auto calibration: frame (incl. fisheye), spherical & cylindrical cameras.
Multi camera projects support.
Dense point cloud: editing and classification
Elaborate model editing for accurate results.
Points classification to customize geometry reconstruction.
.LAS export to benefit from classical point data processing workflow.
Digital elevation model: DSM/DTM export
Digital Surface and/or Digital Terrain Model — depending on the project.
Georeferncing based on EXIF meta data/flight log: GPS/GCPs data.
EPSG registry coordinate systems support: WGS84, UTM, etc.
Georeferenced orthomosaic export
Georeferenced orthomosaic: most-GIS-compatible GeoTIFF format; .KML file to be located on Google Earth.
Export in blocks for huge projects.
Color correction for homogeneous texture.
Measurements: distances, areas, volumes
Inbuilt tools to measure distances, areas and volumes.
To perform more sophisticated metric analysis Metashape products can be smoothly transferred to external tools thanks to a variety of export formats.
Ground control points: high accuracy surveying
GCPs import to control accuracy of the results.
Coded/non-coded targets auto detection for fast GCPs input.
Scale bar tool to set reference distance without implementation of positioning equipment.
Multispectral imagery processing
RGB/NIR/thermal/multispectral imagery processing.
Fast reconstruction based on preferable channel.
Multichannel orthomosaic generation for built-in vegetation indices (NDVI) calculation and export.
3D model: generation and texturing
Various scenes: archaeological sites, artifacts, buildings, interiors, people, etc.
Direct upload Sketchfab resource and export to varios popular formats.
Photorealistic textures: HDR and multifile support.
Python scripts: customize processing workflow
In addition to Batch processing — a way to save on human intervention, Python scripting suggests customization options:
a parameters template for several similar data sets; intermediate processing results inspection; etc.
Floating license allows to install the program on as many computers as desired and run it, at any one time, on as many systems as the number of licenses purchased indicates. One computing machine shall be designated as the "license server"; the license server utility installed on it will manage license distribution across the network of computers where the program has been installed. Floating license is available for Agisoft Metashape Professional Edition only.
Node-Locked License (previously called Stand-Alone license) is a rehostable node-locked license, i.e. one license allows to activate the program at one machine only, however, the license can be transferred to a different computer if needed. Node-Locked license allows to use Metashape software in all kinds of paid and unpaid projects. The license is available both to individuals and legal entities, such as companies, firms, museums, research institutions, governmental institutions, etc.
