Trimensions, a company specialized in close-range photogrammetry, has developed a tool to integrate three-dimensional models into Google Earth with great precision and detail.


They provide a link that enables you to see the results of a model located in Paris, via Google Earth.

In another appraoch, the REALVIZ ImageModeller allows you to create 3D scenes from photographs.

Instant Scene Modeler

Instant Scene Modeler (iSM) uses a pair of cameras to observe a scene. Each camera is looking at the scene from a slightly different angle and iSM can measure distances to thousands of points in each scene. When the cameras move. iSM will match new images, compute the camera motion and generate a model from the calculated 3D Data.
