In the study, the implementation of 3D reconstruction of buildings using drones is explained. In this project, Airsim was used as the simulation environment and images were obtained from the simulation environment using OpenCV and the Meshroom software was run on these images and modeling was done in the computer environment. For real-world studies, the engineering faculty in Ankara University 50. Yıl Campus was modeled using photogrammetry technique. In the last part, the results of different modelling algorithms were compared.
