Split-merge grouping photos clusterODM

Hello ,
Do you know how can I group images to form different shapes of sub-models?
For example I have a rectangle shape dataset and I would like to form 2 submodels trough grouping photos left/right parts of rectangle.
Now photos are sequential generated along flight path and georeferenced.
Do you know how cluster logic divide submodels?

The question is how can I generate image_groups.txt according my desired shapes.

Thanks for any input.

The structure is imagename (space) groupname such as:

Be sure not to have an extra line at the bottom of your file.

Ok.Thank you.

I use exiftool to create a CSV which I load into QGIS and then select and label the different groups.

I also came to this conclusion.
To use exiftool like this.
exiftool -n -filename -gpslatitude -gpslongitude -T ./ > out.txt

Then plot the points to visualize them and see the location here:

Or here:

And then generate image_groups.txt and group them as desired shape.
