The company behind it has been launched in France and is based in Paris and New York City today. It provides a 3D model viewer based on the WebGL technology that allows to display 3D models on any mobile, desktop webpage or VR headset.
Create 2D/3D Maps
RealityCapture is a perfect solution for your mapping projects. You can create infinite number of ortho-projections and maps. For each map, area and volume measurements are automatically calculated. Moreover, you can use several options how to geo-reference your map and with control point experience, you are able to create hundreds of measurements for ground control points within minutes.
RealityCapture Map Wizard is basically one-click virtual assistant in a creation of geo-referenced maps and/or models.
It is an easy and intuitive tool enabling you to have end-to-end results in one place. It works in few simple steps:
Drag & Drop images or laser scans
Import flight log, GCPs or CPs
Define your goal
Press GO and obtain geo-referenced map
RealityCapture enables you to use all different types of geo-referencing like:
GPS coordinates in EXIF
Ground control points
Coordinate system mixing: Furthermore, each ground control point or camera can be in a different coordinate system.
It has never been so easy to create a map. Just define an area, select a coordinate system and press a button. Your map will be stored in the project and you will be able to export it anytime. You can export your map in the form of a "True Orthographic Photograph" or a "Digital Surface Model" into:
Image file formats like JPG, PNG, TIF etc., including the world file.
Google earth: KML/KMZ

Scale and Coordinate System Preservation
There are different ways how to preserve coordinate system across different scans with RealityCapture. It all depends on your camera setup.
XMP: Fixed-camera setup
If you are sure that your camera setup is fixed, then you can use pre-calibration with XMP files. By fixed it's meant that your supporting structure is so strong that each camera position and orientation will remain stable (+-0.01mm and +-0.01 degrees) across different scans. Furthermore, your internal camera parameters will remain fixed, as well (no autofocus, no image stabilization, etc.). If you are not absolutely sure about the precision, you can still use XMP files set to draft mode and RealityCapture will fine tune camera poses and calibration.
Flight log: Bending-camera setup
If your camera position and orientation remain almost stable, then you can use the so-called "flight-log workflow". You can align each scan separately, import a flight log file with camera positions and update the created component. It will just compute a rigid transformation (translation, rotation, scale) so that the original alignment fits best the pre-defined positions imported from the flight-log file. With this workflow, you do not need to place markers into your scene.
Markers: Bending-camera setup
You can also use the well-known way of coordinate system preservation, which is placing radial or any other type of markers into the scene. RealityCapture offers the possibility to generate the coded markers and detect them automatically with a Detect Markers Tool. Using this tool significantly reduces time of points' identification and helps you get correct alignment in couple of minutes.
You can achieve any type of automation with RealityCapture. It does not matter whether you are processing your data on a cloud or locally. There is always a solution for you.

Process Lasers & Images Automatically
The first ever automatic solution for laser scans and images
When this solution has been released in 2015, RealityCapture was the only software on the market capable of automatic laser-scan registration and processing together with images in one step. Still, with this solution you can get the amazing detail in a fraction of time.
The best from both worlds
RealityCapture produces complete, seamless and accurate models that contain the best from your input data. By combining laser scans and images you can get amazingly detailed and accurate geometry from laser scans and also amazingly detailed and realistic textures from photos. RealityCapture uses the best from both worlds (laser scans and images) in order to deliver the most accurate results.
Mixing it all together
"Are the laser scans and images reconstructed separately, and then just merged together"? No, they are not. The advanced proprietary algorithms allow simultaneous registration of all inputs in one step - terrestrial laser scans - ground level photos - drone imagery. This allows creation of seamless point clouds, 3D meshes and ortho projection with the superior accuracy and detail.
Not just mixing 2 point clouds but fully involving all inputs in camera and laser scan pose estimation.
Since RealityCapture combines both laser scans and images in the alignment step, you are able to create seamless and consistent mesh. The resulting mesh is simply the best what you can get from laser and photogrammetry. It is metrologically correct, since RealityCapture does not average laser samples and photogrammetry simply fill holes to add detail where the laser scans are sparse.
RealityCapture enables you to combine terrestrial laser scans with photographs in all possible ways.
Fully automatic coloring/texturing, and meshing of images and laser scans

64bit machine with at least 8GB of RAM
64bit Microsoft Windows version 7 / 8 / 8.1 / 10 or Windows Server version 2008+
NVIDIA graphics card with CUDA 3.0+ capabilities and 1GB VRAM.
It is recommended to use a machine with at least 4 CPU cores, 16GB of RAM, and 1024 CUDA cores. If you do not have the NVIDIA card, you will be still able to run the application and register images, you will not be able to create a textured mesh.
The CPU is required to support SSE4.2 (Streaming SIMD Extensions 4.2) or higher.
The RealityCapture application uses state-of-the-art out-of-core algorithms for almost every task. Therefore, you do not need to worry about computer memory.
You can easily register an unlimited number of images/laser-scans on a single machine. However, it requires a specific workflow using components. In such cases, 16GB should be enough for thousands of high (36-80 MPX) resolution images. You can find more information about components workflow in the application Help, section Using components.
To align an unordered set of images into one component you will need a certain amount of RAM. The consumption depends on a count of images (irrespective of their size) and a count of features per image. If you restrict the count of features per image from default 40K to 20K, you will double the count of images which can use the same amount of RAM.
Meshing, coloring, and texturing are completely out-of-core. Hence you do not need to worry about computer RAM at all. This means that once you have even one million images or scans registered together, you can create a mesh and a texture on a machine with e.g. 16GB of RAM without any performance loss.
