import scalebar distance
« on: July 23, 2018, 06:36:32 PM »
Hello, we have a drone mapping experiment of agricultural field with 26 markers. We are using then mainly as scalebars, since no precision GPS is available at this time.
We have a list of the scalebars and their value and would like to import this list in Photoscan.
How can this be achieved?
We have tried the reference menu button ("import refrence data from file") without success.
The scalebars can be exported using the reference menu, however we were unable to import those values. The exported scalebar file is attached.  Any help is appreciated.

We were able to create a python script to import the scalebars from a csv file, based on this post (http://hairystickman.co.uk/photoscan-scale-bars/). I am attaching the updated script and csv file for future reference in case anyone has a similar problem.
