Professional solution for 3D photogrammetric models creation

Software possibilities

Agisoft Metashape Professional is a advanced software which broadens photogrammetry capabilities. Metashape can process RGB or multispectral images from any digital camera, including systems with multiple cameras. The software can transform images into dense point cloud, texturised polygonal models, geo-linked orthophotos and digital terrain models (DTM).

Professional approach

Results post-processing allows to exclude shadows and textures distortion from models surface, calculate vegetation indexes and create prescriptions for agricultural events, classify point clouds etc.


Image processing is fully automated. All you have to do is upload photos to the project and wait for results.

Popular formats support

You can save 3D models in any desired format: 3DS, OBJ, VRML, COLLADA, PLY, FBX, Alembic, Stanford PLY, STL, Autodesk FBX, Autodesk DXF (in shape of Polyline or 3DFace), U3D and Adobe PDF 3D.

Professional photogrammetry is easy

Agisoft Metashape uses classic photogrammetry methods combined with modern algorithms.

These technologies allow to create versatile photo analysis and 3D modelling system with user-friendly interface. Automatic processing enables precise results with no additional effort..

At the same time, Metashape is extremely useful for professionals. You can control output model's quality with precise parameters setting, customise workspace for specific needs and use advanced functions, like stereo mode or Python scripts.

How it Agisoft Works


Cameras positioning

Cameras positioning

Cameras positioning

After uploading photos to Metashape, the software will automatically get cameras position and orientation for every shot, and will create base point cloud.


Point cloud

Point cloud

Point cloud

After that, Metashape creates dense point cloud based on calculated cameras positions. Dense point cloud can be cut/excluded and classified.


Polygonal model

Polygonal model

Polygonal model

Based on dense point cloud, a polygonal model is created. Two methods are used altitude map — for such surfaces as relief, and random — for surfaces of any kind. The model can be edited or exported.





To raise textures quality, Metashape uses automated image evaluation. Those rated less then 0.5 are recommended to be excluded from generated texture to make model's visual quality better.


What's new:

Creating models from depth maps

Image filtering helps to lower surface noise while keeping the smallest details.

Direct model creation based on depth maps helps to obtain object's true geometry.


Automatic classification

Agisoft Metashape now uses machine learning algorithms, solving more high-level tasks of interpretation and processed data analysis.

Semantic classification function gives the ability to sort points into classes as ground, buildings, vegetation, roads etc.

Cloud processing

Metashape is optimised for multicore processors and systems with multiple graphic cards for faster processing.

Distributed processing using server claster gives it the ability to perform calculations even faster, which is especially useful for big amounts of data.


Stereo mode

Agisoft Metashape Professional enables manual vectorisation in stereo pairs for anaglyph googles or special 3D-displays.

With Metashape 1.6 you can directly point stereo pair in "photo" tab to make stereo mode vectorisation easier.


Photogrammetric triangulation

Processing of various types of imagery: aerial (nadir, oblique) & close-range.

Auto calibration: frame (incl. fisheye), spherical & cylindrical cameras.

Multi camera projects support.

Export in blocks for huge projects.

Color correction for homogeneous texture.

Measurements: distances, areas, volumes

Inbuilt tools to measure distances, areas and volumes.

To perform more sophisticated metric analysis Metashape products can be smoothly transferred to external tools thanks to a variety of export formats.

Ground control points: high accuracy surveying

GCPs import to control accuracy of the results.

Coded/non-coded targets auto detection for fast GCPs input.

Scale bar tool to set reference distance without implementation of positioning equipment.

Python scripts: customize processing workflow

Full process automation

Python scripting suggests customization options: a parameters template for several similar data sets; intermediate processing results inspection; etc.

Multispectral imagery processing

RGB/NIR/thermal/multispectral imagery processing.

Fast reconstruction based on preferable channel.
