With the current tooling as it is, with enough memory, we can get through pretty large datasets up to merging depthmaps. This will become even more interesting with the addition of local bundling by default. Pau has done some interesting work here:
So, now I reach an issue with just creating a mesh from a 900 image dataset (without even using the new OpenSfM which should allow for really large datasets):
/home/gisuser/OpenDroneMap/build/bin/odm_meshing -inputFile /home/gisuser/ODMProjects/9hi/opensfm/depthmaps/merged.ply -outputFile /home/gisuser/ODMProjects/9hi/odm_meshing/odm_mesh.ply -logFile /home/gisuser/ODMProjects/9hi/odm_meshing/odm_meshing_log.txt -maxVertexCount 10000 -octreeDepth 5 samplesPerNode 1.0 -solverDivide 5 Illegal instruction (core dumped)
@pierotofy @dakotabenjamin – have you run into this issue, and if so what did you find? If not, any hunches where I should start troubleshooting? I suspect it’s an issue with large meshes with PCL, but that’s without poking under the hood.
And that gets to a question of approach – do we from here not mesh the whole large point cloud, but mesh in pieces, or do we fix the underlying issue?
