Agisoft Metashape is a stand-alone software product that performs photogrammetric processing of digital images and generates 3D spatial data to be used in GIS applications, cultural heritage documentation, and visual effects production as well as for indirect measurements of objects of various scales.
It is also a cutting-edge software solution, with its engine core driving photogrammetry to its ultimate limits, while the whole system is designed to deliver industry specific results relying on machine learning techniques for post-processing and analysis tasks.
The software allows to process images from RGB or multispectral cameras, including multi-camera systems, into the high-value spatial information in the form of dense point clouds, textured polygonal models, georeferenced true orthomosaics and DSMs/DTMs. Further post-processing enables to eliminate shadows and texture artifacts from the models, calculate vegetation indices and extract information for farming equipment action maps, automatically classify dense point clouds, etc.
Very fast & Highly accurate
Based on the state-of-the-art technology developed by Agisoft, Metashape allows for very fast processing, providing at the same time consistent and highly accurate results both for aerial and close range photography (up to 3cm for aerial, and up to 1mm for close range photography).
Automatic powerlines detection
Metashape 1.7 features functionality to automatically detect powerlines on the images and thus allows to perform large-scale powerlines inspection projects without need to invest in LiDAR equipment. The results in a form of a 3D polyline model for every wire can be exported for documentation and analysis in industry-specific tools or used for obstacle avoidance by mission planning algorithm within Metashape. Robustness of the results is ensured with catenary curve fitting algorithm.
Seamless orthomosaic for Surveying & Mapping
Metashape is a perfect tool for aerial imagery processing. The functionality of the program is being constantly developed according to the tasks set by rapidly emerging UAS industry.
Metashape has proved to be a professional level post-processing tool capable of dense point clouds generation and classification for further exceptionally detailed DSMs/DTMs calculations and high-resolution seamless orthomosaics export, not to mention reconstruction of precise polygonal models of large scale objects. It is an indispensable part of GIS workflow starting with a UAV system.
Highly accurate measurements for Mining & Quarrying
Highly accurate DEMs produced by Metashape lay the grounds for precise area and volume measurements, both for excavations and piles. Once multiple flights performed at different time moments, Metashape allows for volume change tracking, soil erosion and glacier studies. Automatic non-coded targets detection capability saves up on manual work in inspection projects done on a regular basis.
Customized vegetation index calculation for Precision Agriculture & Environmental Management
With support for panchromatic, multispectral and thermal imagery, Metashape seamlessly integrates into workflows involving processing of data from diverse sources, like vegetation and soil analysis, fires and night studies, etc. Vegetation indices calculation according to a user-defined formula allows to analyze crop problems and generate prescriptions for variable rate farming equipment.
Consumer camera support for Archaeology & Documentation
Archaeology more and more often relies on photogrammetric approaches today, be it a need to model an artifact or a demand for an excavation mapping. Thanks to the capability to process imagery from any digital camera, Metashape is widely used in various archaeological projects both up in the mountains and deep under the water, including special researches like greenery pattern studies to find ancient ruins under the ground or rock art documentation and analysis projects.
Oblique imagery support for Architecture & Cultural Heritage Preservation
Numerous projects prove that Metashape is a quality tool to solve the tasks of facade and building modeling. With support for oblique imagery processing, Metashape allows to reconstruct the whole building, which can be employed for virtual tours creation, with reconstruction results being exhibited as illustrative models of largescale cultural heritage objects. 3D models of partially ruined monuments and artifacts generated with Metashape present reliable basis for restoration works thanks to exceptional accuracy of reconstruction results.
Photorealistic textures for Visual Effects & Game Design
Thanks to being highly detailed and photorealistic, Metashape models meet the strict requirements of professional animation studios, which successfully employ the software for movie and game production.
Face and body capture results, being among the most demanded ones, prove that Metashape potential goes beyond one’s imagination.
