How to Setup the WebODM on a server

I am a non techie guy who wants to host the WebODM on a server to process the drone images . I have to process more than 2000 images for big projects , So i want to know what specifications of server would be required for the above requirements ? I am more interested for Digital Ocean . Do i require docker ? and after installing WebODM can I share the map in my website for reference for my clients ?

Please help me regarding this as soon as possible


i would suggest paying for the installer. it is worth the money. all you need to know is how to set up a basic Ubuntu server and then just run the installer.

So I want to know what server specifications required for working on about 2000 images in this software online

About 48GB RAM machine to err on the safe side. Or use for processing. (disclaimer: I run the service). Then you can load WebODM (the UI) with a 2GB machine.

Pierotofy. Is there a rule of thumb for number of cpu cores also? or a ratio of images/RAM/CPU?

The more cores the better, but they might increase memory usage. No definitive rules here.

So if i go for offline application for processing , is there any way to share or get the iframe to show the final output in my website for my clients?

You can pull the task ID via the API, then construct the iframe URL and embed it on a site. That’s how I do it.



How to link the and get the output results and show in the ui ?

The Lightning network is for processing datasets. It’s not for presenting data to your clients.

I need such a system where i can process the datasets offline (I have offline paid software to do that) and upload or show the results to the client in my portal (either by embedding the iframe or any other way ) online like the WebODM shows (Check the view live demo part of WebODM) . I am a non techie guy , please help me to do this feature.
