Bundler Photogrammetry Package

Bundler Photogrammetry Package

This package is now very old. (things have moved really fast!)  I recommend using Changchang Wu’s VisualSFM, which works splendidly and continues to incorporate new research.    Last week I held a workshop on Photogrammetry and Augmented Reality. As preparation for the workshop, I took…
