3D models that have been created from photogrammetry have some evident limitations. To create better, more complete 3D models, it is necessary to understand and reduce these limitations. The project aims to look at the effect of camera orientation and its effect on the overall accuracy of the project. Furthermore, it is proposed to reduce the inevitable gaps in the model by the use of terrestrial photogrammetry. The primary comparison of the model will be between the data captured from photogrammetry techniques and that of traditional style of surveying methods such as total station and terrestrial scanning.

The research was conducted in late 2015 and was processed using the latest software versions as of mid-2016.

The research is supported by UAS Pacific, the aim is to ultimately provide the industry with a better understanding of the data and aims to improve the overall quality of 3D modelling with the use of new exciting technologies and techniques that are available to the public today.
