FishViews is now using photometric technology to map areas that require more detail allowing for digital distance and elevation measurements at cm level precision. PHoDAR (creating 3D rendered point cloud – structure from motion) using photographic techniques provides an alternative to LIDAR for certain applications – especially the virtual reality applications that are the core of what FishViews provides. FishViews has developed a cost effective technique for quickly scanning entire waterway corridors capturing detailed metrically precise image data of the habitat features, bridges, levees and other critical structures. These Esri compatible data are then easily accessed and analyzed via ArcGIS and FishViews application.
