Optimal parameters for 2d orthophoto only

Hi all-

I’ve had good luck with some 200 photo datasets but want to go bigger. I am only interested in 2d orthophotos: is there a way to optimize the parameters to improve processing time and minimize memory demands? I don’t care about point clouds, meshes, or DTMs. I’ve tried fast-orthophoto but it yielded poor results compared to the default setting.

As an aside- where can i find documentation online on what each parameter in webodm does? I am pretty savvy on remopte sensing/photogrammetry but not so good on programming.

Thanks all for the help!


Fast-orthophoto is your best bet if you want to speed things up and lower memory usage.

You could try to set --skip-3dmodel which will save you a bit of time, but not much.
