Evaluation of a facade

ELCOVISION 10 is the universal evaluation software for the 3D measurement from each kind of images. This very user-friendly software enables anybody to measure very efficiently and simple 3D data from images.

ELCOVISION 10 accepts virtually all image sources. You can use pictures of digital cameras, pictures of metric cameras, scanned photos, Kodak Photo CD and Image CD, grabbed images of video cameras and so on.

Starting from the low-cost basic version, up to the professional solution with up to 1.000 photos in the bundle adjustment process with on the fly camera calibration and the option to use normal amateur photos in the photo block, ELCOVISION 10 always offers the right tool for each measurement task. Because of the modular concept of the software, the different versions can be upgraded without loss of money or time.
There are many arbitrarily combinable measuring procedures: Measurement from rectification planes,single image measurement (intersection of the measurement beam with a spatial plane), two and multi-image measurement. The fully automatic image orientation can save you valuable time: in addition to 3D Image positions a usually high density point cloud of the object is computed. For many applications this is already very useful intermediate result.

Traffic Accident Reconstruction ELCOVISION 10 is seamlessly integrated into the following CAD software:

Because of the smooth integration into these CAD systems a maximum of measuring comfort is ensured. All CAD functions such as LINE, POLYLINE etc. became measuring functions.
Numerous additional measurement functions such as automatic 3D measuring trimmed lines, direct measurement of cylinder blocks, direct drawing of circles, arcs, rectangles and ellipses from 3D points and many others, provide an easy and smooth evaluation process.

Typical Measurement Accuracy

The measurement accuracies which were typically achieved without any special circumstances by ELCOVISION 10 depend very much on the used camera and image point of view. The distance between the camera and the object is not really important. E.g. it is more or less the same when the object is photographed from a near distance with a wide angle lens or if the object is photographed from further away with a zoom lens. Below is a table showing the usually achieved accuracies when several different cameras are used.

Used Camera Typical 3D accuracy within an object size of approximate 10m using format filling images
Accuracy at natural points Accuracy at signalized points
Low cost consumer camera with a small CCD:
Fuji F800, Canon Powershot etc.
≤ 15 mm ≤ 8 mm
Semi professional Cameras with APS-C CCD but quite in-stable plastic Body
Nikon D70, Nikon D90, Sony Alpha etc.
≤ 6 mm ≤ 2 mm
Professional cameras with APS-C or full format CCD and stable metal body:
Nikon D300, Nikon D700, Fuji S5 Pro, Canon EOS 5D Mark II etc.
≤ 3 mm ≤ 0.5 mm
High end professional cameras like:
Mamiya ZD, Leica S2 etc.
≤ 1 mm ≤ 0.05 mm
