Agisoft Metashape is a stand-alone software product that performs photogrammetric processing of digital images and generates 3D spatial data to be used in GIS applications, cultural heritage documentation, and visual effects production as well as for indirect measurements of objects of various scales.
Wisely implemented digital photogrammetry technique enforced with computer vision methods results in smart automated processing system that, on the one hand, can be managed by a new-comer in the field of photogrammetry, yet, on the other hand, has a lot to offer to a specialist who can adjust the workflow to numerous specific tasks and different types of data. Throughout various case studies Metashape proves to produce quality and accurate results.
Processing of various types of imagery: aerial(nadir, oblique) & close-range.
Auto calibration: frame (incl. fisheye), spherical & cylindrical cameras.
Multi camera projects support.
Digital Surface and/or Digital Terrain Model — depending on the project.
Georeferncing based on EXIF meta data/flight log: GPS/GCPs data
EPSG registry coordinate systems support: WGS84, UTM, etc.
Inbuilt tools to measure distances, areas and volumes.
To perform more sophisticated metric analysis Metashape products can be smoothly transferred to external tools thanks to a variety of export formats.
RGB/NIR/thermal/multispectral imagery processing.
Fast reconstruction based on preferable channel.
Multichannel orthomosaic generation for built-in vegetation indices (NDVI) calculation and export.
In addition to Batch processing — a way to save on human intervention, Python scripting suggests customization options: a parameters template for several similar data sets; intermediate processing results inspection; etc.
Node-Locked License(previously called Stand-Alone license) is a rehostable node-locked license, i.e. one license allows to activate the program at one machine only, however, the license can be transferred to a different computer if needed. Node-Locked license allows to use Metashape software in all kinds of paid and unpaid projects. The license is available both to individuals and legal entities, such as companies, firms, museums, research institutions, governmental institutions, etc.
Floating license allows to install the program on as many computers as desired and run it, at any one time, on as many systems as the number of licenses purchased indicates. One computing machine shall be designated as the “license server”; the license server utility installed on it will manage license distribution across the network of computers where the program has been installed. Floating license is available for Agisoft Metashape Professional Edition only.
Educational licenses(rehostable node-locked) and Educational Floating licenses are available exclusively to accredited educational institutions, their employees and students of such institutions. Only officially accredited educational institutions are eligible to obtain Agisoft Metashape educational licenses. This includes: universities, colleges, junior colleges, scientific and technical schools, vocational schools, and correspondence schools. Educational or Educational Floating licenses can also be purchased by students and officially employed teaching and research staff of officially accredited educational institutions. Any educational license prohibits all commercial uses of the software. Educational/ Educational Floating and Node-Locked/ Floating licenses differ legally but are technically identical.
