Not enough supported images?

Hello I’m a noob user with a Windows 7 machine. Docker toolbar installed. (can’t install WebODM on Win 7 machine) So I have cloned ODM. on my docker toolbar. Created a folder called images with 600 jpg in this path “C:\Program Files\Docker Toolbox\OpenDroneMap-master\images”. Ran
docker run -it --rm -v “$(pwd)/images:/code/images” -v “$(pwd)/odm_orthophoto:/code/odm_orthophoto” -v “$(pwd)/odm_georeferencing:/code/odm_georeferencing” opendronemap/opendronemap --mesh-size 100000

but I receive this error.

[INFO] Initializing OpenDroneMap app - Mon Sep 24 20:27:43 2018
[INFO] Running ODM Load Dataset Cell
[DEBUG] Loading dataset from: /code/images
[DEBUG] /code/images
[ERROR] Not enough supported images in /code/images
[INFO] OpenDroneMap app finished - Mon Sep 24 20:27:43 2018

Am I not putting my jpgs in the correct path? What do I need to configure for ODM to find my images?

If from the shell you type:


That shows you the correct directory. Is your images directory in the same directory?

yes. I go to cd OpenDroneMap-Master
pwd = C:\Program Files\Docker Toolbox\OpenDroneMap-master

all my images are in C:\Program Files\Docker Toolbox\OpenDroneMap-master\images

still get error message

It’s probably the spaces in your paths. I’d recommend to create a directory in C: (such as c:\datasets) and place your images in c:\datasets\images.

Then you can simply run:

docker run -ti --rm -v c:/datasets:/datasets/code opendronemap/opendronemap --project-path /datasets

thanks for the advice. put the images in c:/datasets/images
ran your script and got .
$ docker run -ti --rm -v c:/datasets:/datasets/code opendronemap/opendronemap -
-project-path /datasets
C:\Program Files\Docker Toolbox\docker.exe: Error response from daemon: invalid
mode: /datasets/code.
See ‘C:\Program Files\Docker Toolbox\docker.exe run --help’.

Mm, it’s something with the volume path (probably c:/datasets).

I suggest you search a bit on Google how to mount a volume in docker using docker toolbox.

I don’t have a Windows 7 machine to test and say for sure what the correct path is. Docker toolbox is a bit quirky unfortunately.

Old but just in case anyone runs in to this problem. The file path can only have one semicolon for the container, you will need to escape other semicolons. On a windows machine you can use a file path like such: /c/users/james/code. Ensure that c is lowercase, make sure your absolute matches a pwd command. You can also substitute the absolute file path with $(pwd)
