Thermal orthomosaic calibration
« on: October 06, 2020, 12:11:13 AM »
I have thermal imagery from a radiometric Zenmuse XT. I am able to align the images in Metashape but I'm not sure how to calibrate the thermal values. While I understand that Metashape does not process R-JPEG, I can extract temperature data using FLIR tools and from a few ground-based sensors in each image. What would be the best way to calibrate the orthomosaic in Metashape? (Alternatively, would it be better to apply the calibration in ArcGIS Pro?)

It's been a while since I've done some thermal ortho's, but we used to take .tiff images, and put a raster transformation on it with the raster calculator.

So the single input band (B1) is transformed in the raster calculator with "B1*0.04-273" as a base, then we would take measurements from flir tools and adjust the offset accordingly.

As I said, it's been a while since I've done this, but hopefully this gets you a little further.
