Agisoft Metashape is a stand-alone software product that performs photogrammetric processing of digital images (aerial and close-range photography) 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.
The software allows to process images from RGB, thermal into the spatial information in the form of point clouds, textured polygonal models. 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 benefit from advanced features like stereoscopic mode and have complete control over the results accuracy, with detailed report being generated at the end of processing.

The number of photos that can be processed by Metashape depends on the available RAM and
reconstruction parameters used. Assuming that a single photo resolution is of the order of 10 MPix, 4 GB
RAM is sufficient to make a model based on 30 to 50 photos. 16 GB RAM will allow to process up to
