Rotate / Translate Point Cloud before Ortho

Hi All - I am looking for a way to “re-orient” point cloud data (rotate and/or translate) into the correct coordinates/angle w.r.t. ortho “plane” before WebODM generates the ortho. The generated point cloud is of high quality, accurate, and dense, however appears off-axis with respect to the ortho plane…resulting in distortion/improper dimensions.

What ODM input/outputs could be used to correct? Has anyone seen or explored this or have any ideas on how to attempt it?

Thank you in advance.

Try setting some ground control points. That’s probably the easiest way.


Thank you! I will give this a shot if possible for this data set and see if it helps!

Hi Piero - Sorry I am just getting back to this issue…
I am creating some GCPs to give this a shot utilizing the GCP Editor Pro (very convenient and useful tool!). While creating some representative GCPs I noticed the Z is NaN. All my GCPs are at ground level and I am really hoping this can help “re-orient” these point clouds that seem to be rotated…but am not sure it will have an impact? I will definitely give it a try but any further thoughts you and others have would be greatly appreciated.
