General / Re: Fast orthomosaic without build Dense cloud?
« on: September 14, 2019, 12:17:39 PM »
Is this from overlapping aerial photos? If the ground is relatively flat, use 'Image Composite Editor' a free image stitching program for Windows. www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=52459  You will then have to georeference the final image in a mapping program.

General / Re: View errors - orders of magnitude changed?
« on: September 09, 2019, 07:15:04 AM »
I have never entered or changed the precision/accuracy of my GCPs. Perhaps I should.
That doesn't explain why my errors have changed to about 100x smaller. Only the Metashape version has changed.

I have changed the precision to 5m for the points I kept. That looks more like it used to be.
Is there somewhere that I can set a default precision? (It is likely to be similar for all projects).

Here is a small old (July 2017) model which would have had errors of more than 1 or 2m per point.

General / View errors - orders of magnitude changed?
« on: September 06, 2019, 08:10:21 AM »
Within the last few months, a new version of MetaShape has been showing me errors in my project which are perhaps(?) 100x smaller than usual.

 I have opened some old PSZ files to check and these also have the unusually small errors. I am typically getting errors of 0.004m, whereas I would normally expect around 1-4m.

This is for aerial models. Sorry but I didn't record the date or version when this occurred.
Has anyone else seen a large reduction in their errors?

General / Re: GCP Pinning - Photogrammetry mapping
« on: September 04, 2019, 07:27:26 AM »
I can't say I've noticed that problem. I pin a marker to a GCP  in two adjacent photos. Then I do that for two more markers. Then I do Update & Optimize Alignment. I guess it depends how close "reasonably close" is to you. Come to think of it, you might be correct - I recall some showing up further away than I expected.

General / Re: The most effective way to make a scan from many photos?
« on: June 30, 2019, 03:33:43 AM »
Your question is strange. What do you mean by make a scan? Do you mean produce an orthophoto?

The fact that there is a .jgw (world file) means it is georeferenced and rotated to north in a particular projection.
Open the .jgw file with NotePad.
You will see the (ground) size of each pixel in metres.
You will see the X-Y coordinates from the middle of  the top-left pixel. The will be from one of the UTM projections.

The photos you linked to are georeferenced orthophotos. They are *outputs* from a program such as Photoscan. They can't be used to create DEMs.

General / Alignment problem - 1.5.2 build 7838
« on: April 04, 2019, 03:39:43 AM »
I have four parallel overlapping runs of (vertical) aerial photography.

Using Generic Preselection, I can only align the first two runs, no matter what other settings I use.

If I disable Generic Preselection, I can only align the OTHER two runs.

I have saved these as two separate PSX files.

Is there some way to merge the two jobs? Or should I just process them separately?
The only requirement is an orthophoto. Do not need an accurate DEM.

Have other people had alignment problems with version 1.5.2?
Should I install version 1.4 as a parallel installation and try with that?

General / Re: System requirements - where is my fault ?!?
« on: March 04, 2019, 03:32:53 AM »
If on Windows, note the exact time of the crash (to the nearest 5 seconds even).
Then look at your Event Logs, especially the System ones. They will often be a very strong clue as to what went wrong.

Bug Reports / Re: 4GB Max file size when exporting orthophoto

Will it delete after you restart the compter?
If not, try one of these: https://www.raymond.cc/blog/lockhunter-is-unlocker-alternative-that-works-on-windows-x64/

General / Quick and dirty mosaicking - possible?
« on: December 24, 2018, 05:45:48 AM »
Is it possible to create a 'quick & dirty' mosaic from hundreds of well-overlapped aerial images (GPS data is in images)?
The land is mostly quite flat.
Don't need georeferenced output.
Don't need any height info.

Thanks.

It certainly could Alvin. I've processed 2000 photos (5472 x 3648px) using a 2nd gen i5-2500k (overclocked) with *onboard* graphics only. Sure, it takes a *long* time though.

Hi Alexey,
Any comments on the values I used?
Also, what effect would disabling interpolation have on the orthophoto?

Hi Alexey,
Details are all in my PDF report here www.dropbox.com/s/aum5ghgoccz60ws/Kitchener_Park_Agisoft_report.pdf?dl=0
Some of the values you will see are
254 images: 5472 x 3648 px
Key/Tie point limits: 80,000 / 20,000
Tie points: 471,998 of 699,990
Dense cloud points: 122,457,855
