DCM's analysis of historic world record muskie photos is discussed in the July 2013 issue of Ontario Out of Doors "For the Record: The 65-pound Muskie Question" by Peter Brewster.


Metrology Services

DCM uses science and mathematics to solve, analyze and support solutions for all types of Measurement problems.  DCM uses state of the art software (PhotoModeler) and technology (Total Station, Cloud Point, Scanners, etc...) with a strong specialization in Photogrammetry to develop image-based modeling, for accurate measurement details and 3D models. 

Photogrammetry is the science of extracting measurements from photographs. It has uses in areas of many industries with highly accurate results. These results have been compared to and meet, in some instances, surpass hand and total station measurements in a court of law on countless occasions.

DCM has provided metrology services for items of all sizes and shapes, from icebergs to teeth!

DCM Technical Services has applied photogrammetry to solve problems involving:

  • Degradation analysis
  • Comparative studies
  • Reverse Engineering
  • 3D digitizing
  • Mapping
  • Analysis
  • Inspection
  • There are two types of Photogrammetry classifications.  DCM uses the first classification called Close-range Photogrammetry.  Close-range Photogrammetry uses non-specific, everyday cameras to create drawings and 3D models of items, locations or buildings.

    The other classification is Aerial Photogrammetry which typically focuses on topographic products such as terrain or topographic maps.  DCM is capable of processing aerial photographs as well. If you do not already have images for this purpose we can arrange proper flight parameters to ensure proper coverage and accurate results.

    Photogrammetric processing provides reliable, scientific and cost saving metrological services for all clients. Previous projects have included photo capture in hazardous areas, confined spaces, locations of difficult and/or dangerous entry. In these situations, pictures have been taken via DCM processes and provide accurate digitized files for the clients when alternative measurement services were not feasible.

    DCM can also provide on-demand services and storage of photographs for later use.

    DCM is capable of determining measurements using Photogrammetry via two processes.  The first includes processing from existing pictures to provide scientific conclusions of measurements of the item in question.  These pictures can be historic in nature and age or of recent development.

    The second process involves DCM attending a scene or location to take pictures as a component of the service for analysis.

    DCM staff can attend sites for photo capture. Alternatively, DCM can work with clients to develop safe and proper procedures for ideal photo capture, uploading and processing by qualified DCM staff.

    DCM has developed procedure manuals and training videos for clients to assist with proper photo capture and processing. This is the level of versatility and commitment DCM consistently make to its clients.
