I use WebODM to help farmers evaluate their fields. I like the web interface of WebODM. It works very well on mobile phones. This makes it easy for farmers to view the ortho images quickly after a flight. However, it would be really cool if I could connect SW Maps (an app for displaying and recording GIS data in the field) with the WebODM ortho.
I have done this in a three step process. 1) Download the WebODM ortho. 2) Convert ortho to MBtile in QGIS. 3) Transfer to phone so SW Maps can read the file.
I wish I could just connect SW Maps to the online WebODM XZY tiles. However, based on the post “Can’t get the Orthophoto TMS layer” it seems this is not really possible. I know I can move the WebODM ortho to another server as suggested, but then I have more disk usage, and a more complicated system. Thanks for any feedback or suggestions. I just want to make sure I’m not missing something that could make this process easier. - Seth
