Christ the Redeemer Project 3D Models


Pix4D, in collaboration with PUC University of Rio de Janeiro and Canadian UAV manufacturer Aeryon labs, took on the challenge of creating the first ever, accurate high-resolution, 3D reconstruction of the Christ the Redeemer statue in Brazil.

Despite strong wind, fickle weather conditions, restricted hours for data acquisition, and inconsistent lighting, the project team acquired over 3,500 images for processing in Pix4Dmapper. The impressive high-resolution model of Christ the Redeemer and its surrounding area are in the format of a point cloud with 134.4 million points and a full textured 3D mesh with 2.5 million triangles.
