This week’s selection is “Photogrammetry Fundamentals: The Ultimate Survival Guide” by ARCHIV3D.

Photogrammetry is one of the most accessible means of performing detailed 3D scanning. In theory, all you need is a digital camera, some software and patience.

I’ve done quite a bit of photogrammetry with a variety of software tools, some of which are good, some not so good, but all of them are a bit tricky to use. The path to achieving success in photogrammetry is a combination of taking proper images and correct settings in the software.

Normally you’ll figure it out by trial and error, trying different approaches. You’ll learn that the backgrounds had better be in focus, and that you’ll probably need well in excess of 150 images to get good results. It took me a while to get comfortable doing photogrammetry.

Then there’s this book, which provides an easy-to-read introduction to photogrammetry. It approaches the problem from scratch, meaning you don’t have to know anything about photogrammetry, aside from having an interest in learning it.

The book provides an introduction to the concepts, but then gets deep into examples, tutorials and case studies that explain a variety of photogrammetry applications and scenarios.

If you’re wanting to avoid purchasing a 3D scanner and want to get into photogrammetry, then this book is for you.
