Mosman Seed Sculpture

Sculpture Scan - Mosman Bay

Scan of a seed sculpture at Mosman Bay, Perth using my iPhone and processing with Metashape.

Mission Summary

  • Goal: We were simply sitting on the grass enjoying some quite time on the foreshore when I spotted this goregous sculpture. I grabbed my trusty iPhone and did two orbits (one low and one mid level), then I grabbed my daughter and got her to sit on my shoulders to capture a high orbit.
  • Tech: iPhone 8s, Metashape
  • Conditions: Midday, sunny, super pleasant weather
  • Outcome: Overall a detailed scan, however in the shady areas it's broken and hollow, I need to improve me capture techniques in future.
Level of detail is clear not only on the seed sculpture but on the concrete services cap next to it.

Hollow sections in the model from inadequate overlap of imagery, this was in a shadowed zone

This has been another 'drone adventure' in aerial surveying, inspection and mapping by The Aero Scout.
Location: Mosman Bay, Western Australia, Australia
