Integrate LiDAR point clouds with drone aerial photos

I’m looking for the possibility of integrating with LiDAR point clouds and drone aerial photos. Can we build mesh and 3D model out of LiDAR point clouds and drone photos to texture them? Is there a possibility for that? Or are there any workarounds?

Thank you very much for your wisdom.

If the LIDAR point cloud is in the same coordinate reference frame, you could technically stop the ODM process after the odm_filterpoints stage, replace the point cloud (from multiview stereo, stored in the odm_filterpoints directory ) with your LIDAR scan, then resume the process from odm_meshing.

It’s a bit of a hack, but should work.
