To process a project with Agisoft Metashape please follow the step-by-step instructions. You may download a dataset from this link.

General recommendations

  • WingtraOne data sets, in particular from its RX1R II payload, can be very large. Please make sure to have enough computing resources available.
  • We recommend >= 32GB RAM, >6 core and enough high-speed SSD storage. For more information please check this article.

We recommend using High Quality for better results. Note that this can make the processing take longer.

The DEM is the Digital Elevation Model which can give you precise information on the Surface model and where the water will flow to. 

You can view the DEM by double-clicking on DEM under Chunk1 and see the map with different colors showing the heights.

You can even see the Contour Lines by clicking on Tools and Generate Contours...
Here you can choose the interval measured in meters and set the min and max altitude
