I have been exploring several ways of creating virtual experiences. I believe that having paranormal investigator engaged in this environment and soliciting their feedback will help me get valuable inputs.
I tried using photogrammetry to capture as is objects in my local cemetery. My thoughts are that objects should be captured, so researchers and investigator can examine the objects in details.
I definitely have a lot to work on improving the quality, but I think this specific example came out ok.
I completed my Halloween decorations last week. I was considering 3D solutions for the paranormal field when I had a need to test some applications which create 3D point clouds.
I went around testing different objects, and came across my decorations, and I asked myself why not.
If you know photorgrammetry, the typical workflow is you create a sparse 3D point cloud, dense cloud, and then some mesh work.
Here is my sparse point cloud.
This is the my dense cloud
I decided not to do the mesh model at this point, and opt to use Potree. Potree is a web application that allows you to import your dense cloud and view it in the browser. The application which I used to create the model is a stand-alone application called Agisoft PhotoScan.
One other application which I used was Cloudcompare. I used it to clean up the model a bit and export in a format which I import it into Potree.
If you would like to see the model in Potree, click on the link. Best viewed in a desktop modern browser.
If you are attempting to view this in a mobile browser, you will need to enable WebGL for it to properly render.
