Agisoft Metashape is a fast and accurate tool that enables you to process digital images and generate 3D spatial data. This software can be used in GIS applications, cultural heritage documentation, and visual effects production as well as for indirect measurements of objects of various scales.


Standard Edition

Photogrammetric triangulation

  • Processing of various types of imagery from digital cameras.
  • Auto-calibration for frame (incl. fisheye) cameras.

Dense point cloud generation

  • Elaborate model editing for accurate results.

3D model generation and texturing

  • Various scenes: archaeological sites, artefacts, buildings, interiors, people, etc.
  • Direct upload to various online resources and export to many popular formats.
  • Photorealistic textures: HDR and multi-file support (incl. UDIM layout).

Panorama stitching

  • 3D reconstruction for data captured from the same camera position — camera station, provided that at least 2 camera stations are present.
  • 360° panorama stitching for one camera station data.

Professional Edition

Photogrammetric triangulation 

  • Processing of various types of imagery: aerial (nadir, oblique), close-range, satellite. 
  • Auto calibration: frame (incl. fisheye), spherical and cylindrical cameras. 
  • Multi-camera projects support. 
  • Scanned images with fiducial marks support. 

Dense point cloud: editing and classification 

  • Elaborate model editing for accurate results. 
  • Automatic multi-class points classification to customise further reconstruction. 
  • Import/export to benefit from classical point data processing workflow. 

Digital elevation model: DSM/DTM generation 

  • Digital Surface and/or Digital Terrain Model — depending on the project. 
  • Georeferencing based on EXIF meta data/flight log, GCPs data. 
  • EPSG registry coordinate systems support for WGS84, UTM, etc. 
  • Configurable vertical datums based on the geoid undulation grids. 

Georeferenced orthomosaic generation 

  • Georeferenced orthomosaic: most-GIS-compatible GeoTIFF format; KML files to be located on Google Earth. 
  • Export in blocks for huge projects. 
  • Colour correction for homogeneous texture. 
  • Inbuilt ghosting filter to combat artefacts due to moving objects. 
  • Custom planar and cylindrical projection options for close-range projects. 

Terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) registration 

  • Simultaneous adjustment of both laser scanner and camera positions. 
  • Capability to combine TLS and photogrammetric depth maps. 
  • Markers support and automatic targets detection for manual alignment of scanner data. 
  • Masking instruments to ignore unwanted objects in scanner data. 

Ground control points/scale bar support 

  • GCPs import for georeferencing and control over the accuracy of the results. 
  • Coded/non-coded targets auto-detection for fast GCPs input. 
  • Scale bar tool to set reference distance without implementation of positioning equipment. 

Measurements: distances, areas, volumes 

  • Inbuilt tools to measure distances, areas and volumes. 
  • To perform more sophisticated metric analysis the products of photogrammetric processing can be smoothly transferred to external tools thanks to a variety of export formats. 

Stereoscopic measurements 

  • Professional 3D monitors and 3D controllers support for accurate and convenient stereoscopic vectorisation of features and measurement purposes. 

3D model generation and texturing 

  • Various scenes: archaeological sites, artefacts, buildings, interiors, people, etc. 
  • Direct upload to various online resources and export to many popular formats. 
  • Photorealistic textures: HDR and multi-file support (incl. UDIM layout). 

Hierarchical tiled model generation 

  • City scale modelling preserving the original image resolution for texturing. 
  • Cesium publishing. 

4D modelling for dynamic scenes 

  • Multi-camera rig data processing for creative projects in cinematographic art, game industry, etc. 
  • The basis for numerous visual effects with 3D models reconstructed in time sequence. 

Panorama stitching 

  • 3D reconstruction for data captured from the same camera position — camera station, provided that at least 2 camera stations are present. 
  • 360° panorama stitching for one camera station data. 

Multispectral imagery processing 

  • RGB/NIR/thermal/multispectral imagery processing. 
  • Fast reconstruction based on preferable channel. 
  • Multi-channel orthomosaic generation and user-defined vegetation indices (e.g. NDVI) calculation and export. 

Automatic powerlines detection 

  • Straightforward and time-efficient for large-scale projects since requires only aligned images as the input. 
  • Results export in a form of a 3D polyline model for every wire. 
  • Robust results thanks to the catenary curve-fitting algorithm. 

Satellite imagery processing 

  • Common processing workflow for panchromatic and multispectral satellite images is supported, provided that sufficiently accurate RPC data is available for each image. 

Python and Java API 

In addition to Batch processing – a way to save on human intervention, Python scripting and Java bindings suggests sophisticated automation and customisation options. Starting from adding custom processing operations to the application GUI up to the complete job automation and integration to Python or Java pipeline. 

Network processing 

Distributed calculations over a local computer network to use the combined power of multiple nodes for huge data sets processing in one project. 

Cloud processing 

Cloud processing interface allows you to save on the hardware infrastructure for the photogrammetric pipeline, with a further option to visualise and share the variety of the processing results online with colleagues or customers, as well as to embed published projects in your own web platforms.
