Overview of open source software for close range photogrammetry

Interesting article. I’ve tried all the three softwares mentioned and WEBODM is definitely the best, particularly because is the most intuitive and it has more functions than the other two. Anyway, I think that also Regard3D is an interesting project, but when I tried it, I found it very slow in the processing pipeline. However, I’m wondering how valid is the comparison that they made, because if I well understand, they processed the images in Photoscan with high parameters, while they use only the default parameters in Webodm. It would be interesting to try to use high parameters also in WebODM.
I’ve tried also Meshroom, that seems quite interesting and there was also ppt toolbox, but I don’t know if the project is still active.
