SfM Photogrammetric Surveys

SfM (Structure-from-Motion) photogrammetry can be a powerful survey tool in the right hands and the Greenhatch Group has extensive experience of using this technique for commercial projects. When carefully controlled with traditional survey methodologies, SfM photogrammetry can provide dense point clouds, mesh models and high-quality photorealistic renders with high degrees of accuracy and precision. The scalability of SfM means the technique can be applied to single objects for sub-mm precision or whole landscapes when used with UAV.

Greenhatch use SfM increasingly for providing scaled elevation orthoimages for architects and conservation bodies. However, we are also well equipped to provide more traditional rectified photography for suitable subjects including photographic surveys, 360° panoramas and virtual tours.

Viewing and navigating Sketchfab render:


  • Move camera: 1 finger drag or Left Mouse Button
  • Pan: 2-finger drag or Right Mouse Button or SHIFT+ Left Mouse Button
  • Zoom on object: Double-tap or Double-click on object
  • Zoom out: Double-tap or Double-click on background
  • Zoom: Pinch in/out or Mousewheel or CTRL + Left Mouse Button
  • Double-clicking the background also re-centers the model and sets the camera pivot point to the middle of its bounding box. Double-clicking anywhere on the model sets the camera pivot point to that spot.
