Community Based Understanding and Data
« on: August 18, 2021, 05:52:25 PM »
A group of us have been using Metashape to assemble what would seem to be simple structures around our homes. Invariably we end up with poor results, either with distortion, poor alignment and any other manner of challenges which end up with us wondering what we could be doing better. 

The documentation is a bit sparse in terms of explaining how one should develop the skill to use Agisoft to create a good 3D model. We are thus wondering whether we might provide a section of this forum to get advice from others.  Ideally we could share data sets and explain the source of  problems in developing a 3D model.  Specifically we are interested in creating models of homes, both interior and exterior, but we don't necessarily want to limit ourselves to this.

Ideally people could (a) Provide a set of images which are known to create a valid model  (b) Comment on how those images were used to create the model with Agisoft and (c)Provide examples of data which was not successful in creating models.

I don't know how we would handle data on this site yet  nor how we would structure such a process, but we are posting this question to the forum.  After playing with Agisoft on and off  for 12 months, we have yet to end up with a series of well aligned photos which lead to a superior model.  Perhaps there are others in a similar situation.

Is there anyone out there ? Seems that lots of people have viewed this post but nobody has replied. Please provide your comments as we are very interested in them.  As we say in the old country, get your fingers out !
Tx, parry

Hello parry,

Thank you for your suggestion.

We'll consider dedicating special section for the threads, where people would like to share their datasets (both problematic and those which provide good results).

Meanwhile you can always create the thread in the General section and share the link to the dataset that you have problems with, so that any user could download it and try to get better results.
Best regards,
Alexey Pasumansky,
Agisoft LLC

Thanks Alexey
I realise this could be a stupid question, but do you have a repository for such things, or should we set something up as a git repo, box etc or something of that type ?
Thanks, Parry
