GCP text file - software looks in the 'code' folder?

Hello,

I’m trying to run Opendronemap with a gcp text file as described in the wiki.

I’ve launched the following command in Docker on Windows 10:

docker run -it --rm -v C:/Software/OpenDroneMap/images:/code/images -v C:/Software/OpenDroneMap/odm_orthophoto:/code/odm_orthophoto -v C:/Software/OpenDroneMap/odm_texturing:/code/odm_texturing my_odm_image --min-num-features 12000 --use-pmvs --gcp C:/Software/OpenDroneMap/gcp_list.txt

I got the following output:

Whole texturing procedure took: 156.798s

Is this an issue with the formar of my gcp text file, or am I right in thinking that the software is looking in the ‘code’ folder by default instead of looking at the path I provided for the --gcp flag?

Docker and gcps are kinda weird. You need to add the gcp file as a volume mount like this: -v C:/Software/OpenDroneMap/gcp_list.txt:/code/gcp_list.txt. Since it is named in a standard fashion, you don’t need to specify --gcp

Thanks for the help @dakotabenjamin. I ran the following:

docker run -it --rm -v C:/Software/OpenDroneMap/gcp_list.txt:/code/gcp_list.txt -v C:/Software/OpenDroneMap/images:/code/images -v C:/Software/OpenDroneMap/odm_orthophoto:/code/odm_orthophoto -v C:/Software/OpenDroneMap/odm_texturing:/code/odm_texturing my_odm_image --min-num-features 12000 --use-pmvs --dem

And it got as far as:

Is this indicative of an issue with my gcp_list.txt file? Or something else?

My GCP file looks like this…
gcp_list.txt

@everydayduffy

you have 4 control points.

I plot and saw some are aligned. ( A, B and C )

try a short gcp_list.txt and check if point D is selected in best triplet or you will have altimetric problems.

This is an issue i am observing with current georeferencing procedure.

@everydayduffy

I translate your GCP to UTM with PROJ4.
