To perform more sophisticated metric analysis the products of photogrammetric processing can be smoothly transferred to external tools thanks to a variety of export formats.
Professional 3D monitors and 3D controllers support for accurate and convenient stereoscopic vectorization of features and measurement purposes.
3D model: generation and texturing
Various scenes: archaeological sites, artifacts, buildings, interiors, people, etc.
Direct upload to various online resources and export to many popular formats.
Photorealistic textures: HDR and multifile support (incl. UDIM layout).
Hierarchical tiled model generation
City scale modeling preserving the original image resolution for texturing.
4D modeling for dynamic scenes
Multi camera rig data processing for creative projects in cinematographic art, game industry, etc.
Basis for numerous visual effects with 3D models reconstructed in time sequence.
3D reconstruction for data captured from the same camera position — camera station, provided that at least 2 camera stations are present.
360° panorama stitching for one camera station data.
Multispectral imagery processing
RGB/NIR/thermal/multispectral imagery processing.
Fast reconstruction based on preferable channel.
Multichannel orthomosaic generation and user-defined vegetation indices (e.g. NDVI) calculation and export.
Automatic powerlines detection
Straightforward and time-efficient for large-scale projects since requires only aligned images as the input.
Results export in a form of a 3D polyline model for every wire.
Robust results thanks to catenary curve fitting algorithm.
Satellite imagery processing
Common processing workflow for panchromatic and multispectral satellite images is supported, provided that sufficiently accurate RPC data is available for each image.
Python and Java API
In addition to Batch processing - a way to save on human intervention, Python scripting and Java bindings suggests for sophisticated automation and customization options. Starting from the adding custom processing operations to the application GUI up to the complete job automation and integration to Python or Java pipeline.
Distributed calculations over a local computer network to use combined power of multiple nodes for huge data sets processing in one project.
Cloud processing interface allows to save on the hardware infrastructure for photogrammetric pipeline, with further option to visualize and share the variety of the processing results online with colleagues or customers, as well as to embed published projects in your own web platforms.
Educational licenses (rehostable node-locked) and Educational Floating licenses are available exclusively to accredited educational institutions, their employees and students of such institutions. Only officially accredited educational institutions are eligible to obtain Agisoft Metashape educational licenses. This includes: universities, colleges, junior colleges, scientific and technical schools, vocational schools, and correspondence schools. Educational or Educational Floating licenses can also be purchased by students and officially employed teaching and research staff of officially accredited educational institutions. Any educational license prohibits all commercial uses of the software. Educational / Educational Floating and Node-Locked / Floating licenses differ legally but are technically identical.
Node-Locked License (previously called Stand-Alone license) is a rehostable node-locked license, i.e. one license allows to activate the program at one machine only, however, the license can be transferred to a different computer if needed. Node-Locked license allows to use Metashape software in all kinds of paid and unpaid projects. The license is available both to individuals and legal entities, such as companies, firms, museums, research institutions, governmental institutions, etc.
