Recreating Tower Of London Graffiti Using Photogrammetry

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8dW4L9KaQxI Last weekend I visited the Tower of London, which gave me a great opportunity to try out some of the Photogrammetry ideas I have had in the past few weeks. Apart from testing 123D Catch out on large monuments and entire palace façades, I decided (thanks to the suggestion of Helene Murphy) to try …

Photogrammetric Model Made With Iphone 4s

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rhxqcs5RqDE I've experimented before with using my Iphone to create Photogrammetric models (not through the app, just taking the photos and running it through the Windows version of 123D Catch), with interesting but not perfect results. The other day however I found myself with a nice complete in situ sheep skeleton and no camera, so …

Roman Villa Reconstructed In 3D

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_CI5I3UfrE&feature=youtu.be Based on the plan of an actual Roman Villa, this is a fly through of the model. It's a way to explore this living area and get a more authentic feel of what it would have been like to actually live in the Roman times. The model was made using Google Sketchup, and the …

Virtual Museums: Combining 3D Modelling, Photogrammetry and Gaming Software

I wrote the post below yesterday night, but since it was written I've managed to create at least a part of what is described in the text, which is shown in the video above. Hence keep in mind that the rest of the post may be slightly different from what is in the video. One …

Glastonbury Ware Pot – Ham Hill

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DB4hfNxk1QA&feature=youtu.be This is one of the first attempts I made with Photogrammetry, and probably one of the ones I am most happy with. It is a beautiful pot found during the 2011 excavation, and that was glued together to show how it would have been prior to destruction. I made the model using around 60 …

Reconstruction of St. Mary’s Church – Caerau

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dM9i1qe0Avk&feature=youtu.be Here is my first video animation of Saint Mary’s church in Caerau, Cardiff. I made the model a few months ago of this beautiful church, which unfortunately is only partially standing today. It is based on a plan of the cemetery and a number of photographs I found from when it was still complete. …
