Dense reconstruction based on CMVS.
Here is a tutorial.

Hypr3D allows one to build and display SfM models online.

Below is a model of Huaca  generated from a collection of kite aerial photographs.

The YouTube video shows the process of building a model. The clip also illustrates exporting the model to MeshLab, model cleaning, and transformation to the proper scale.

Here is a clip illustrating the use of Visual SfM
