Experimental photogrammetry in Prepar3d

Recommended Posts

Hi,

as a user of France VFR sceneries, I have occasionally a look into their forum. There I found an interesting topic on using photogrammetry under Prepar3d right now:

https://www.vfrnetwork.com/forums/index.php?/topic/17773-photogrammétrie-expérimentale-dans-p3d/

As we know, MSFS will include a number of photogrammetry regions (i.e. those present in Bing Maps). Now, this French approach is certainly different from the MSFS way in that it doesn't stream data from a server but preprocesses them and stores them locally (like ordinary Prepar3d scenery). While this may not (yet?) be ripe for prime time, I find it interesting such a procedure can be practically implemented.

Unfortunately, I don't speak French, thus I have to run all this through a translator which isn't really fun.

I recall a similar X-Plane project by Oscar Pilote, author of Ortho4XP, a couple of years ago which however doesn't seem to have materialized since.

Kind regards, Michael

Michael -- if you use Chrome as a browser you can have it autotranslate from French to another language. No need to have an external utility.

Ah that's a pity, sorry for that. You may have to register at the forum. I didn't recall that as I am continually registered.

Kind regards, Michael

I am used to Edge which has an internal translator as well, but it doesn't work always for French. I agree Chrome works better.

Well yes, It's possible. In fact you can import photogrammetry models from google maps. and place it as a model in Prepar3d.

Thanks for the link, looks meh. I feel the French guy did a better job, or maybe, the objects were just better suited.

Kind regards, Michael
