How Drones Aid Design

Freelance designer Jim Wolfe imports aerial drone photos into 3-D design software to create backyard projects.

An image of an existing back yard is taken from about 75 feet up.

A different angle

The drone circles the yard several times. With each pass, the angle on the camera is adjusted to capture more data.

Creating a new space

Images captured by the drone are converted to scale in a 3D model. The model is then imported into Pool Studio, allowing Wolfe to design in a 3D environment.
