Aligning two point clouds using georeference

From @Gregoriomartjim on Thu Jul 06 2017 18:44:20 GMT+0000 (UTC)


I have some photos with georeference. i used opendronemap to get the point cloud but i cant get the point clouds aligned, (i used the altitude, latitude and longitude) however i cant manage to align them.

Is there a way to do this or am i doing something wrong?
Is there a way to set the origin in opendronemap?

this is a picture of the 2 point cluods

A naive alignment will not likely work in this case. ODM currently does not have this functionality. So are these two point clouds encompassing the same area? I’m not sure exactly what I’m looking at

yes they are the same area, but different pictures. They look to have the same plane orientation, but one is above the other.

OK, I think this is outside the scope of ODM, so I will close this issue.

@dakotabenjamin , i apologise, let me reopen this issue.


it is interesting, to compare same area at different time. ( temporal analysis )
Could you, please, share your command line options and your “logs” , and gcp_list.txt, if available ?

well i got the GPS coordinates from a different sensor, then using exiftool i add the coordinates to the pictures, finally i used this in ODM. how could i upload the pictures ?

you can create a new repo and upload your images.
Git has a 25MB limit for upload.
compress your images using several blocks if necessary.
