Cultural Heritage & Architecture

"RealityCapture has, for the first time, allowed us to combine the accuracy of LiDAR with the detail and color of photogrammetry to create high resolution, high accuracy models of cultural heritage sites. The creation of accurate models and high resolution ortho-tiffs is essential for the work we do in supporting active conservation at cultural heritage sites, and the 3D models are also the foundation for Virtual Reality experiences like the MasterWorks VR app we launched earlier this year.“
