I teach at UMCP in the Department of Geographical Sciences' professional masters in GIS program. One class that I teach is an advanced remote sensing class focused on lidar. I would love to bring Ecosynth into my course, perhaps as a lab assignment. That way I can introduce my students to a low-cost alternative to lidar for generating point clouds.
I have yet to use Ecosynth myself, so I'm a bit of a beginner (my expertise is mostly in lidar remote sensing).
My first point cloud
Here is a point cloud we made with a Phantom 3 quadcopter and AgiSoft PhotoScan. We exported it in the Po-Tree format then put it on the web by editing an example from the free potree viewer(https://github.com/potree/potree).
