Simplified Photo Orthorectification and Plotting


#1

I have a set of Drone Exif photos that I would like to plot according to the Exif metadata in the photos and skip the stitching.

Is there a simple way orthorectify the photos and plot them without stiching the photos together? I’m up for ideas.

It’s not possible to skip stitching altogether. There’s a whole body of work on realtime ortho creation, but AFAIK, no turnkey solution out there.

That said, we do have a fast ortho process (experimental) which may help:

--fast-orthophoto     Skips dense reconstruction and 3D model generation. It
                      generates an orthophoto directly from the sparse
                      reconstruction. If you just need an orthophoto and do
                      not need a full 3D model, turn on this option.
                      Experimental.
