Time Lapse

Time Lapse
The Bird’s Eye camera is the best camera for Time-lapse videos. It is applicable in various sectors like agriculture, manufacturing, construction, railways, etc.


High-tech imaging devices are now used to observe the growth of vegetation, availability of water on the surface, presence of weed & pest across the agricultural lands. Time-lapse photography can be used to assess crop performance.


Long term time-lapses can best witness the natural changes like melting ice, soil erosion, deforestation or plantation, etc. For creative purposes, some artists are interested in shooting short term time lapse to capture mountains, rivers, and the position of the sun across the year, etc.

Other Common Application Areas


An orthophoto, orthophotograph or orthoimage is an aerial photograph ge-ometrically corrected (“orthorectified”) such that the scale is uniform: the photo has the same lack of distortion as a map. Unlike an uncorrected aerial photo-graph, an orthophotograph can be used to measure true distances, because it is an accurate representation of the earth’s surface, having been adjusted for topographic relief, lens distortion, and camera tilt.


Digital Terrain Models (DTM) sometimes called Digital Elevation Models (DEM) is a topographic model of the bare Earth that can be manipulated by computer programs.The data files contain the elevation data of the terrain in a digital for-mat which relates to a rectangular grid. Vegetation, buildings and other cultural features are removed digitally – leaving just the underlying terrain.DTMs are used especially in civil engineering, geodesy & surveying, geophysics, geog-raphy and remote sensing.


Digital Surface Model (DSM) that includes ground surface, vegetation and man-made objects. DSM demonstrate the natural and artificial features on the Earth’s surface. Digital Surface Model may be useful for RF planning, land-scape modelling, city modelling, visualization applications and more


A point cloud is a set of data points in space. The points represent a 3D shape or object. Each point has its set of X, Y and Z coordinates. Point clouds are generally produced by photogrammetry software, which measure many points on the external surfaces of objects around them. As the output of 3D scanning processes, point clouds has many applications.


A 3D mesh is the structural build of a 3D model consisting of polygons. 3D meshes use reference points in X, Y and Z axes to define shapes with height, width and depth.

While it can take large numbers of polygons to make a 3D mesh approach photorealism, these relatively simple shapes allow for faster processing than other techniques, like NURBS, that produce smooth curves. The polygons used are typically quadrangles or triangles; these geometric shapes can be further broken down into vertices in X, Y, Z coordinates and lines.


The Grid Points are simply the conversion of the Digital Elevation Model (DEM) either DTM or DSM at certain equal intervals. This data is particularly helpful in interoperability between different working software environments.


Geotagging, or GeoTagging, is the process of adding geographical identifi-cation metadata to various media such as a geotagged photograph or video. Two main options can be used to geotag photos: capturing GPS information at the time the video is taken or “attaching” geocoordinates to the video after the picture is taken.
Right from traffic signals to monitoring public places, government departments have a huge responsibility to keep things regulated. Centrally monitoring the public activities help in an efficient administration. Specially developed for government projects, Bird’s Eye open-access tool can be publically accessed & creates a transparency solution.
Visualizing long term processes of changes in the marine realm indicating the transformation of sites, objects & organisms is of great importance to researchers. These processes are too slow for human perception & can be remotely observed through time lapse videos captured over an extended period of time.
The power sector incorporates heavy machinery installations. Such operations have to be continuously monitored by the trained officials on-site & off the site. Bird’s Eye helps in monitoring & systematically documenting such operations. May it be the turbine in a power plant or a windmill installation on open ground, Bird’s Eye planning tool breaks down the activity into small events & produces event-based time-lapses to witness the minute details.
Manufacturing units produce thousands of units every day & keep an eye on every piece is difficult. But checking the pace of production & quality control on a daily basis is made simple through daily time-lapse videos. A 20-25 second video shows all the activities that occurred in the production area.
Time-lapse opens up an opportunity for tourism departments to attract people. Bring the heritage to the spotlight by creating amazing time lapse videos.
