I am not sure what this means, other than having to do with GeoReference, although I supplied no GCP file.

The Job was run using DEFAULT, with the resize disabled.

I purchased the Ubuntu 16.04 Server install, installed it on a fresh Ubuntu 16.04 Desktop install, running as a VM on ESX 6.7 and allocated 8 CPU’s with 128GB Ram. During the install there were a number of Warnings, but no errors and failures that I noticed, so my assumption is that everything installed correctly (I just ran the supplied script)

Additionally, after checking for valid GPS data in the images (see OneDrive Link), I used PrecisionViewer ( to confirm the images are not corrupted and sent the same images to be processed, which completed successfully.



Looks the same as odm_georef fails with large point clouds (exit code 139, seg fault) · Issue #909 · OpenDroneMap/ODM · GitHub for which we are working on a fix. Keep an eye on Allow odm_georef to handle large point clouds by pierotofy · Pull Request #924 · OpenDroneMap/ODM · GitHub for updates.

So what is the correct way to upgrade the Ubuntu 16.04 Server Installation of WebODM?

Is there something like bach update?

I have seen you refer someone to cd webodm and then execute

sudo su odm
webpack --watch

Or do I simply install over the existing install?



To update I would remove /www and /code and re-run the installer (to update NodeODM and ODM, ignoring the errors), then for WebODM you should be able to do:

sudo su odm
cd /webodm
git pull origin master
source python3-venv/bin/activate
pip install -r requirements.txt
python migrate
python collectstatic --noinput
webpack --mode production
sudo service webodm-nginx restart
sudo service webodm-gunicorn restart
sudo service webodm-celery restart
sudo service webodm-celerybeat restart
