Depth maps generation explanation
« on: August 30, 2021, 12:46:48 AM »
Hello

I'm currently puzzled as to how depth maps are generated and filtered. This is from the manual:

"Depth maps are calculated for the overlapping image pairs considering their relative exterior and interior orientation
parameters estimated with bundle adjustment. Multiple pairwise depth maps generated for each camera
are merged together into a combined depth map, using excessive information in the overlapping regions to
filter wrong depth measurements."

How do the levels in the GUI come into play here as in what do they mean?
And how is the depth map filtered? What is this excessive information that is used?

I would welcome an explanation.
