This is the story behind the Ponte Romano model:
“I wanted more people to be able to see and feel this place. This medieval stone bridge is in a very beautiful but relatively unknown spot near the village of Corcapolo in Ticino, Switzerland.
I used a DJI Phantom 4, in free flight mode, I manually set the exposure during the flight to try match the light and colors.
I created the project with Pix4Dmapper in my desktop. I edited the point cloud and used the “carve” annotation tool. I also added 2 small surfaces to the walls of the bridge in the region where it intersects the vegetation, and big surface on the water to flatten it.
In addition, I enabled the “ Use Color Balancing for Texture ” setting when generating the 3D Textured Mesh, this improved the texture of the water surface.” Damiano Maeder, Oblivion Aerial, Founder and Pilot.
