import 3D vector data for control reference
« on: May 29, 2013, 12:32:40 AM »
I do survey work with a reflectorless total station and RTK-GPS, then create vector maps from the survey data using SurvCADD (a survey module for Autocad). It would be handy to be able to import the 3D vector survey data (lines and points) into Photoscan in a format such as dxf. Then have the ability to select vertices or points to use for control points inside of Photoscan.

This image shows 3D lines created from data collected using a reflectorless total station along with Photoscan undistorted photos in Blender.

The undistored photos and camera information were exported from Photoscan and imported into Blender using scripts provided by jedfrechette. Links to Jed's scripts can be found in this thread:
