350 images over 56 acres, the problems is there are two high rise jib cranes. On the processed map most of the crane & there jibs are missing. Any ideas!
Hi Jean, point cloud data is missing. Have you seen this? https://blog.dronedeploy.com/how-to-leverage-drone-generated-point-clouds-in-bim-software-a795546e6154
Have you tried looking at the point cloud in DroneDeploy?
When the 3D model is generated, it creates a mesh that because it makes compromises can remove some narrower elements of booms and jibs. The point cloud is likely to include those.
Thanks Kara, I’ll have a read…
Hi James, the point I was making is that the cranes are missing in the normal map, would this be due to the overlap?
Probably not due to overlap. I’d imagine due to lack of oblique imagery of them. Cranes should appear on a point cloud, but I’m surprised they don’t also appear on the ortho, unless they were moving during the flight.
Please send our support team an email including the particular map, and they will be able to give you more useful feedback about the specific example.
