Krasiczyn Castle 3D model, Poland

Melown maps: a new 3D reconstruction method for interactive 3D digital surface models.

3689585365?profile=originalGuys, check out the newest sample obtained from the photos I have gathered almost a year ago. It took some serious research effort because the area is very difficult (many trees and vertical object) and we were testing 3D reconstruction from strictly oblique imaginery gathered during low level flight (5cm/pixel, 150m agl, used stabilised head in order to limit roll deviations).


Honestly, the result is even more detailed than the results I got from CMP-SFM institute from Prague one year ago, much better than from any other method, moreover the resulting product is easily viewed within web browser. You can compare the quality of regular satellite imaginery taken at 100cm resolution surrounding this castle (and relatively coarse public 10m elevation grid in the area).

I am not 'affiliated' with them in any way, just provided the data. They are from Czech Republic.

Amazing results!

  • Fine work.  You deserve the credit. 

  • Excellant ! Which software was used for stitiching the pictures ? 

  • You can see the wiki page post here:


    Please let me know if there is anything you would like me to add or change.

    Best Regards,


  • Hi Krzysztof,

    This is really amazing, resolution and 3D fidelity is truly excellent.

    I'm going to include this Blog and the link to your map in the 3D mapping page of our wiki.

    It is simply the best.

    Congratulations and Best Regards,


  • Wow! Truly impressive.

  • This looks amazing! And the map being painted (while loading data) is also an interesting side effect :)

    This is only 15km from Ukrainian border. Mr Putin pulled all the pixels to his side. You know, silent conflict.

  • yeah! Go Poland! :)
