Photogrammetry: 3D scans changing real estate that anyone can make

Photogrammetry has long been in use to showcase and map our world through a different view with the help of photography and a camera lens, and now the technology has found its way into real estate.

Business development manager at PHORIA Wade Angelo said that it’s useful to think of it as a very detailed digital pin art toy.

“Aside from science fiction, these scans are being used in real estate today. With these scans, agents can create and manage property content, like photo sets and floor plans.

“They’re also acting as the backbone for digital twins, smart environments that let you anchor information in the real world.”

Mr Angelo said that much the same as humans perceive depth by viewing the world through two eyes, photogrammetry creates 3D information by piecing together 2D information.

“This capability extracts new layers of data from our physical world to build a different perspective based on the use of images. Before the world of 3D scanners, the right combination of pictures could be used to create 3D models through photogrammetry.

“More recently, 3D scanning has emerged, bringing us the ability to create an incredibly detailed digital representation of an item. 3D scanners like the Matterport camera measures the size, shape and texture of a physical space.

“3D scanning rapidly emits a laser or patterns of infrared light as the scanner moves between points of reference, enabling the collation and alignment of a ton of spatial information.”

He said that once complete, you’ve essentially created a catalog of 3D data.

“In isolation, one data point doesn’t mean much but, when processed and combined, translates to a digital story of the object or space,” Mr Angelo said.
