Lens Correct the photo - this will straighten a known straight or flat surface - Lens Correction takes about 30 seconds.

Calibrate the photo - all you need is two known dimensions x-y axis, this takes about 10 seconds

Trace the features of the building that are shown in the photograph.  Making sure that this is done accurately -
if many windows/features are the same, just do one of them because they can be copied easily in CAD.

Next Export to CAD or DXF files - we usually use Sitemaster Building as our CAD programme, but any CAD programme
will work well.

Sitemaster Building or your CAD programme receives the rectified data - examples are for illustration purposes
only and are not finished

 Some Features

  • Open jpg,bmp,tiff and png images
  • Interactive Zoom function
  • Measure any part of the photograph
  • Report on floor areas, wall areas and window openings
  • Print the reports
  • Export the data in perspective or rectified mode
  • Export into various CAD data formats
  • Photographic Facade Survey
     
    SiteMaster Elevation is an independent add-on for SiteMaster. You can benefit from photogrammetric
    procedures by determining detailed measurements from freehand digital photographs or scanned images.
     
    SiteMaster Elevation requires only one rectangle with two known side lengths for calibrating an image plan.
    The software lets you measure and draw a building

    in 2D with added height information on floors,
    openings etc.

    It saves the exact measurement results by
    redrawing the image with points, lines, rectangles,
    polylines, arcs and circles. SiteMaster Elevation
    transfers drawing elements with state-of-the-art
    technology to your CAD system, e.g. or SiteMaster
    Building. After completing your measurements you can
    generate a report list of all measurements and areas.
    The results can be exported in excel lists.  

    Processing digital photographs of the building's facade
    in SiteMaster Elevation
    allows you to enhance your
    project into a full 3D plan with precise exterior views.
     
    You can exchange drawing files between SiteMaster Elevation,
    SiteMaster (and other solutions) using the .FLX (PowerCAD)
    and .DXF file formats.
     

     


    Note! Precision is approximately 5mm over 8 metres when using a 6megapixal camera. A high resolution and
    large image and large calibration plane will give max precision and ability to zoom/pick points.
