Welcome to a beginners guide to drone modeling with Metashape


This course covers 2D & 3D Modeling with DJI drones and Agisoft's Metashape. In this class students will learn about capturing images with their DJI drones for creating models. Students will then walk through the process of generating 2D & 3D models with a software package known as Metashape, developed by Agisoft.

The basic principles of Drone Modeling will be covered in this course. Capture images, import to a modeling program, aligning images, generating a point cloud, generating a 3D mesh, and generating a texture file. Most programs for drone modeling follow this workflow. So even if you're not a Metashape user, this class will still walk you through the basics of the modeling process.

Introduction To Metashape

Building 2D & 3D Models with drone images and Metashape. Drone flight setups and basic modeling with Metashape

This course covers 2D & 3D Modeling with DJI drones and Agisoft's Metashape. In this class students will learn about capturing images with their DJI Drones for creating models. Students will then walk through the process of generating 2D & 3D models with a software package known as Metashape.


Please keep in mind that this course is targeted for beginners.


What will you learn in this course?


  • In this course students will learn about creating Drone Models and Maps with Agisoft Metashape
  • Students will be shown drone modeling capture applications
  • Students will be exposed to the process of autonomous drone flight for building 2D and 3D Models
  • Students will learn about Metshape's Standard and Pro versions and the differences between them
  • Students will learn about Digital Elevation Models, Orthomosaic Models, and 3D Models made with Metashape
  • Students will be able to practice their own drone models with several image sets included in this course.
  • Beginning students should develop a very good handle on the workflow process from drone to finished model in Metashape.

What should students know before taking this class?

  • It would be most beneficial if students were already drone pilots. It's not required, but understanding drone flight will be beneficial
  • Students should have a copy of Metashape Standard or Metashape Pro to get the most out of this course. They can download a 30 day trial of the software
  • Students should have a working knowledge of legal drone flight in their location
  • Students should be proficient drone pilots before they start this course. This course is not an introduction to drone flight, it is an introduction to drone modeling.

Who is this class for?

  • Drone Pilots who want to grow their drone business
  • Drone pilots who understand the basics of drone modeling
  • Drone pilots who already understand drone flight basics, and the rules for drone flight in their country
  • Beginning drone modeling students
