Agisoft Metashape

Geodimensional is an official reseller for Agisoft Metashape.

Agisoft Metashape (previously known as Agisoft Photoscan) is one of the most commonly used digital photogrammetry software packages. Digital photogrammetry, also known as Structure-from-Motion (SfM) is a computer vision technique that allows to generate photorealistic and high resolution three-dimensional models from a set of overlapping digital photographs that have been taken from different viewpoints.

Geodimensional has over 15 years of experience in the use of Agisoft Metashape. Let us assist you.

We have applied photogrammtry workflows to various projects such as stock pile volume estimations, underground blast face modelling, coastal platform modelling, open pit modelling, archaeological surveys as well as high-resolution 3D modelling of geological hand-specimens and railway tracks.

Agisoft Metashape is available as Professional Edition or Standard Edition. The Standard Edition allows you to generate 3D models but does NOT have any georeferencing capabilities, which basically disqualifies it for 99% of common applications. There are various other features missing as well, as shown on this comparison page.

There are two main licence options

Node-Locked License

One license allows to activate the program at one machine only. However, the license is rehostable, which means the user can manually deactivate and then transfer the licence to a different computer. Both computers need to be connected to the internet though because the activation and deactivation of the license has to be registered by the Agisoft server.

Floating License

Allows to install the program on as many computers as desired and run it, at any one time, on as many systems as the number of licenses purchased indicates. One computing machine shall be designated as the 'license server'. The license server utility installed on it will manage license distribution across the network of computers where the program has been installed. Please note that the price of a floating licence is double the price of a Node-Locked licence.

It is possible to upgrade from a Node-Locked License to a Floating Licence at a later stage.

There are also license packs of 3, 5, 10 and 20 licenses available at discounted rates. They make sense for larger companies or institutions that want to make use of Agisoft Metashape's network processing capabilities. Agisoft also provides highly discounted licenses for educational customers. However, 3rd party access to these licenses is strictly prohibited and they cannot be used for any commercial research/work.
Every licence includes 12 month email based technical support from Agisoft and entitles the licensee to free updates of the software up to version 1.9.x. We also recommend to visit the official Agisoft Metashape online forum which has a very active community.
Compared to other photogrammetry software packages which are available on a subscription basis, there are no ongoing costs with Metashape.
