I guess I have a hang up on photogrammetry lately. But I enjoy the way you can move data quickly in an effortless operation.
Google Maps is getting better and better, and to be honest I am really amazed how you can view an entire city in great detail. We use Google Maps in our office to investigate exciting sites and surroundings, and I have thought that it would have been valuable to import this information into Revit.
And guess what, by using photogrammetry I made it happen:)
- open google maps in full screen and find your building site
- rotate the view around your site meanwhile you press «print screen» as often as you wish
- with dropbox installed, the «print screens» should be perfectly downloaded automatically
- you should crop your photos to get rid of unwanted text/labels. You can do this by making an «action» in Photoshop and then choose «File» – «Scripts» – «Image Processor» to crop every photos in a folder
- then you make a mesh in Memento with your cropped photos and export it in RCP
- import it into Revit and enjoy
PS! For fun, I also tried to do photogrammetry with Google Streetview. It was not successful but I will try again later. I do have some ideas:)

You sir, are a genius. I have been looking to do this for months! Thank you so much for sharing this. I’m going to re blog it on my blog therevitsaver.blogspot.com
HA! time to sell my DJI – no need to leave the office ! way to think outside the box !
