I have just finished setting up my computer with Ubuntu Linux and WebODM, and processed my first basic project with 110 20MP photos successfully. I plan to use the system for generating terrain maps, 3D models and point clouds of facilities with overlaping / congested piping and structures that can be imported into Autocad to make piping or equipment changes. My question is how to take advantage of my hardware which is a i7, with 16Gram, 500G SSD with 64G in use as a Linux Swap drive.
Do i need to specify anything in the setup of the WebODM, Docker or Ubuntu to take advantage of the Swap drive?
What default WebODM settings should be changed to allow the most usable 3D point clouds of the piping, such as applying SMRF filters, or other flags / settings to the processing?
Are there any good documents on ‘best practices’ for using WebODM to generate usable 3D models and point clouds?
What are best options for flight planning and capture of photos?
Thanks in advance for your help.
