This idea is about developing a plugin for QGIS that would allow users to upload, process and import orthophotos, DEMs and other assets directly from QGIS while using the WebODM API (http://docs.webodm.org).
+1 to this idea. We should look at QGIS 3 which is coming out very soon.
This might be a good opportunity: Home · qgis/QGIS Wiki · GitHub
+1M for this.
If I could do my flight planning, GCP creation/validation, processing, viewing (with QGIS’ new 3D capabilities), reviewing all within QGIS?
Is there a doc that shows how to integrate WebODM with QGIS or this still pie in the sky?
Still needs someone to implement it.
It’s less pie in the sky, and more feasible with point clouds (and meshes?) making their way into QGIS. But, it would require a volunteer with a lot of time, or funding + a developer.
Point-clouds are going in with PDAL, and Lutra Consulting do have other web point-cloud (potree, entwine) formats listed as stretch-goals, which they should be tackling as they over-funded their drive for PDAL.
As for meshes, MDAL is mostly concerned with spatio-temporal mesh formats, though QGIS is beginning to see some rudimentary “object” (?) mesh format support like PLY via MDAL.
I would love beyond love to see this happen, but as Steven mentioned, this would likely be a big undertaking.
