Reality Capture API

Integrate reality capture capabilities into your applications

The API utilizes photogrammetry techniques to generate high-resolution 3D models, point clouds, and orthophotos. It efficiently cloud computes structure-from-motion and multi-view-geometry algorithms. When the API is connected to your own mobile, desktop, or web REST applications, the resulting data can be viewed and utilized within Autodesk applications like ReCap Photo, ReCap Pro, Civil 3D, and InfraWorks for advanced visualization, analysis, and manipulation.
