Another example?[edit]

Would Microsoft Live Labs Photosynth and Google Street View be considered examples of Photogrammetry applications? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.248.228.189 (talk) 20:10, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

Both packages employ 3D models, Photosynth via photogrammetry, Google on the other hand may not generate its models from images. --krioboy 00:06, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
Should we mention Photosynth, we should also mention other software packages typically used in photogrammetric reconstructions (Autodesk Imagemodeler, EOS Photomodeler). Photosynth is nice, it has inovative user interface, but the algorithms (calibration, matching) are "just" implementation of already known algorithms. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.201.48.25 (talk) 11:36, 26 December 2008 (UTC)

Copyvio[edit]

So, is it just me, or is there some major copyvio in this article with respect to "Introduction to Photogrammetry"? --Gwern (contribs) 16:16 20 June 2008 (GMT)

Obsolete ...hardly![edit]

This is an individual's opinion, not fact nor consensus. Photogrammetry forms the very foundation of so-called "Geomatics" (which itself is the fusion of geophysics, geography, engineering, geology, geodesy, surveying and computer science) and is constantly being used as more and more planet observation satellites are launched for remote sensing. Satellite stereo photogrammetry plays a crucial role in updating terrain maps (DTM, DEM), hydrology maps and furthering our knowledge of the geoid in great detail. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mxbuck (talkcontribs) 19:53, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

Yes, the section was clearly original research and entirely lacking in references or citations, so contributes nothing to a reader's understanding of the subject. No reason not to add it back if the claims can be substantiated, but as it stands it says nothing verifiable, so I deleted it. 82.6.108.62 (talk) 17:15, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Photofly[edit]

Should this article mention Photofly and how cloud computing is now allowing a wider audience to use photogrammetry?

Split[edit]

Should the table of software be moved to its own wiki page, e.g. "Comparison of Photogrammetry Software"? --LeBoef (talk) 09:38, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

if so, the table should be expanded to include, e.g., information on the availability and cost of educational licenses. HMallison (talk) 23:08, 18 March 2014 (UTC)
I don't see what it has to do with the split. Feel free to add such a column either in this page or after a split. --LeBoef (talk) 08:59, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
Enough time passed (if you ask me), so I did the split. --LeBoef (talk) 11:36, 3 May 2014 (UTC)

No Areo?[edit]

I'm rather surprise to not see it here. It was actually the best online service I've come across when I was doing evaluations three years ago, and I doubt that they devolved since then. Here is their website for Areograph: http://areo.co.nz/areograph/ (Areoscan and Areohawk are (I'm assuming) extensions of AG.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by DeadlyDad (talkcontribs) 16:45, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

Huh?[edit]

Photogrammetry is an estimative scientific method that aims at recovering the exact positions and motion pathways of designated reference points located on any moving object, on its components and in the immediately adjacent environment.

Huh? And why is so much of this in italics and bold? 15:57, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

  • Fixed it. — Gwalla | Talk 20:56, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

Lumberjack sport?[edit]

There's a template for "lumberjack sports" at the bottom of the article, which does list photogrammetry. But this article doesn't discuss any competitive aspect(???) or lumberjacking, and lumberjack sports doesn't mention photogrammetry at all. What gives? — Gwalla | Talk 20:56, 30 April 2014 (UTC)
