ArcGIS Reality Studio

Part of the ArcGIS Reality suite of products

Aerial reality mapping at scale

City and country aerial mapping software

ArcGIS Reality Studio is an advanced photogrammetry product optimized for precision, speed, and simplicity. Use this scalable solution for city and countrywide aerial mapping to create an important piece of 3D digital twins. Align large collections of images captured by multicamera sensors across multiple flights to create highly accurate true orthos, 3D meshes, and point clouds. An intuitive mapcentric 3D interface provides automated processing workflows for the efficient creation of survey-grade products. Easily collaborate and share data within geographic information system (GIS) technology and mapping systems for photorealistic visualization and analysis.

How it works


Load and manage data from multiple flights and multicamera systems. Use control points and reuse existing measurements. Import polygons to constrain surfaces or to set a region of interest.

Optimize the relative and absolute orientation of imagery from multiple flights. Measure control points to correctly georeference your results. Reestimate camera parameters if necessary.

Turn large collections of aligned images into high-quality 3D meshes, point clouds, digital surface models, and true orthos. Control the resolution of the output rasters and meshes. Track progress on the map.

ArcGIS Reality and digital twins

Digital twins are representations of real-world objects and their processes and relationships. With ArcGIS Reality, users create highly accurate 3D meshes, true orthos, and point clouds to use as an important piece when developing 3D digital twins of social, natural, and built environments. Learn more about Esri’s 3D capabilities and how they relate to a comprehensive digital twin.
