With the progress of 2D/3D visualization systems, models and software that effectively integrate graphical content with domain-specific knowledge become the adopted solution to allow the interrogation, understanding, interpretation and manipulation of visualized information. This paper introduces a software module that extends our data-lifting toolbox to automatic export of photogrammetry information from the Agisoft software (photogrammetric processing of digital images and 3D spatial data generation) into a semantic knowledge base representation.
