What files do Webodm give you?

Ok so I’m wondering what are all the files that webodm outputs after its done processing? I notice that it gives a orthophoto, DSM, and .laz. but does it put out more and if so what file will it be in because when I made a task it has like 13 or something folders. Does it also give a DTM file as well or a CAD file?

That depends heavily upon what input options you feed it, and what products you request.

Do you have a copy of your processing parameters for the dataset you’re talking about above?

Ok here is the google folder with the zip files that webodm gave me when it was done processing.

Any thoughts on the Zip file?

:file_folder: \

  • :file_folder: \ dsm_tiles - Contains the tiles for the DSM in TMS format
  • :file_folder: \ entwine_pointcloud - Contains the EPT for the Dense Point Cloud
  • :file_folder: \ odm_dem - Contains the GeoTIFF for the DEM of the dataset
  • :file_folder: \ odm_georeferencing - Contains the projections, transformations, boundaries, centroids, etc for the dataset
  • :file_folder: \ odm_orthophoto - Contains the GeoTIFF of the generated ortho for the dataset
  • :file_folder: \ odm_report - Contains the processing report as well as the shots (image centroids)
  • :file_folder: \ odm_texturing - Contains the georeferenced/un-georeferenced textured 3D models of the dataset
  • :file_folder: \ orthophoto_tiles - Contains the tiles for the orthophoto in TMS format
  • :page_facing_up: \cameras.json - Contains the optimized camera parameters
  • :page_facing_up: \images.json - Contains all the metadata for each image in the dataset

If you want a better overview of the products, and what products you can request, please check out the excellent OpenDroneMap: The Missing Guide book by Piero.


thanks I think I understood 15% of that.

What ones do you need more clarification on?

well i thought the file output would show ndvi and other things like that because I heard on another post that someone just wanted orthomap but someone responded by saying webodm gives you all files no matter what.

oh another question I have that’s off topic, how can I change my cpu and memory usage in docker. i remember that docker asked me how much when i installed webodm but how do i go back to that and change those settings

NDVI needs to be calculated after the fact in something like QGIS currently.

I think they meant that you will get all the other files used in reconstruction, much like we saw from above.

For your other question, try the docker documentation (it’s excellent), search here, and if you still can’t get it working, ask a new question!


Nice outline there.

I am working on a computer vision-like project that allows users to click on 2D images and return an approximate 3D real world location.

In order to do so, I would need both

  1. the relationship between tie points and the images
  2. undistorted images

When I refer to the documents [List of all outputs](https://docs.opendronemap.org/outputs.html#list-of-all-outputs)
these information should be found under opensfm/ directory. However, when I download all assets from WebODM they are not available.

May I ask if there is a way that I may download the undistorted images and tie points relationship?

You can browse to the directory and copy them out.

We don’t have a way to get that type of debug/intermediate file from the GUI as they are typically of no use to end users.

Fair point. Thank you!


May I ask for more guidance on how I may access these intermediate files? The following is a screenshot of the directory (WebODM-data being the volume directory that I’ve specified in docker-compose), but I cannot find the images or opensfm directories.

The intermediate files won’t be on the WebODM instance, but the NodeODM instance.


Got it, thank you!
