Where to find Sparse Point Cloud?


#1

Hi,

I would like to access sparse point cloud before it is converted to densified point cloud.
My use case : Try to georeference the point cloud before it gets converted to densified. Also, edit the sparse point cloud to remove unnecessary points (eg: sky points) and re-run the job.

I dont know if the sparse point cloud is getting saved somewhere now, Or At which stage in the pipeline should the code be modified to make ODM save sparse point cloud in the local installation?

Thank you.

Hey @garlac, you can find it in opensfm/bundle_r000.out. If you need a PLY file, run ODM with --fast-orthophoto, see run_opensfm.py:158.
