GPS data in EXIF for orthomosaic in vertical scanning

Hi all,

I was looking for information on which is the valid format for adding GPS info to EXIF into the images. I search and I didn’t find anything. In our flights, we generate a file storing the GPS information, and I just did a programme to pass it to the correspondent GPS EXIF field (longitude, latitude, altitude), but I have the feeling that something I am not doing right, since the orthomap looks weird.
Currently my EXIF info looks like this:

So, I am wondering which are the compulsory fields needed to take this information into account for the orthomosaic, do I need more info??. And in the case of trying to reconstruct vertical elements, e.g. building facade, or a windturbine, how this GPS information is taken into account?? Is there any documentation out there somewhere?

Thank you!

Cheers,

Carmen

To make sure you’re doing this correctly, try using ddb.

ddb set file.JPG --gps lat,lon,alt

Lat/lon in decimal degrees, alt in meters. Makes the process a lot easier (and since I wrote the tool I have good confidence it will set the appropriate values).

Then if the problem persists, maybe the root cause is elsewhere.
