Agisoft MetaShape

​Drone image processing, 3D modeling & mapping software

Processes digital images and generates 3D spatial data, fast and highly accurate.

main function


photogrammetry triangulation

Processing of various types of images: aerial (nadir, oblique), near-field, satellite / Automatic correction: frame (including fisheye), spherical and cylindrical cameras. Support for multi-camera projects. Scan with fiducial marking supported.



Georeferenced orthomosaic creation

Export as blocks for larger projects. Color correction for uniform texture. Built-in ghosting filter to prevent artifacts from moving objects. Custom planar and cylindrical projection options for near-field projects.


Measurements: distance, area, volume

It has built-in tools to measure distance, area, and volume. Photogrammetric processing products can be seamlessly transferred to external tools thanks to a variety of export formats to perform more sophisticated metric analyses.


Create a hierarchical tile model

City-scale modeling that preserves original image resolution for texturing.


Multispectral image processing

RGB/NIR/thermal/multispectral image processing. Quick reconfiguration based on preferred channels. Create multi-channel orthomosaics and calculate and export user-defined vegetation indices (e.g. NDVI).


Python and Java API

Python scripting and Java bindings suggest sophisticated automation and customization options. From adding custom processing tasks to the application GUI to complete task automation and integration into Python or Java pipelines.


Dense point cloud: editing and classification

Sophisticated model editing for accurate results.

Automatic multi-class point classification to customize further reconstruction.

Benefit from existing point data processing workflows with import/export.


Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS) registration

Adjust the laser scanner and camera positions simultaneously. Ability to combine TLS and photogrammetric depth maps. Marker support and automatic target detection for manual alignment of scanner data. Masking tool to ignore unwanted objects in scanner data.



Professional 3D monitors and 3D controllers support accurate and convenient stereoscopic vectorization for functional and measurement purposes.


4D modeling for dynamic scenes

Multi-camera equipment data processing for creative projects in the film arts, gaming industries, etc

Fundamentals of numerous visual effects with 3D models reconstructed in chronological order.


Automatic power line detection

It requires only sorted images as input, making it simple and time-efficient for large projects.

Results are exported in 3D polyline model format for all wires.


network processing

Distributed computation over a local computer network to use the combined power of multiple nodes to process huge data sets in a single project.


Digital elevation model: DSM/DTM generation

Depending on the project, digital surface and/or digital terrain model. Georeferencing based on EXIF metadata/flight logs, GCP data.

EPSG registry coordinate system support: WGS84, UTM, etc.


Ground control point/
scale bar support

Control Automatic detection of coded/uncoded targets for fast GCP input. Scale bar tool to set reference distances without implementing positioning equipment.


3D Models: Creation and Texturing

A variety of scenes: archaeological sites, artifacts, buildings, interiors, people, etc. Upload directly to various online resources and export to many popular formats;Realistic textures: HDR and multi-file support


Panoramic stitching

3D reconstruction for data captured from the same camera position — camera station (if there are at least two camera stations). 360° panoramic stitching of data from one camera station.


satellite image processing

A common processing workflow for panchromatic and multispectral satellite images is supported if sufficiently accurate RPC data is available for each image.


cloud processing

The cloud processing interface allows you to save hardware infrastructure for your photogrammetry pipeline, visualize and share various processing results with colleagues or customers online, and embed published projects into your own web platform.
