Smoothing boundaries between drone flight paths on DEM
« on: April 22, 2022, 02:56:00 AM »
I've created a textured model based on drone imagery and then built/exported a DEM in Metashape. However, there are pronounced ridges along the edges of my flight path areas, appearing as if showing the edge of a terrace. How can I smooth these seams/ridges? They should be apparent in the attached image. Any advice is appreciated!

I think these ridges are evidence of misalignment between different flights...

so you should revisit alignment and overlap between different flights.....
