AMNH visit 2013 Part 1: Oviraptor photogrammetry

Pretty much everybody know IGM100/1127, the holotype of Khaan mckennai. Today, I get to study this beautiful specimen a bit.

The first thing to do is a HR photogrammetric model. I ran the alignment and did a medium density model of a small part, so I’d quickly know if the model will come out fine.

that looks very good, wonderful alignment of three rows of photos.

Khaan_02

and this the medium density point cloud sample. Wowza!

Next up, a new set of photos with long exposures and low F. That should be even better. Then, close-up series of the skull, the hip, the tail (which is what I am here for), the hands, the feet, and so on.
