My entry to #rcdragons challenge.
Dragon is located in Ronov nad Sázavou an it is a made-up image of a dragon that often appears in Czech fairy tales and legends. The statue is about 5m tall but it was scanned completely from the ground, without using a drone.
The name on the stone he’s holding (Apoly) is actually name of the company nearby, so his purpose is probably just to hold this ad banner. A little sad for such a majestic animal :).
Technical data about scanning process:
Number of photos: 602 Used equipment: Sony A7R + tripod (but some of photos was captured by hand) Approx. scanning time: 1h 30m Processing time: 12h 08m (processed on notebook) Nr. of polys in raw mesh: 195M (processed in normal detail, would not make it in time on high)
