functions for import and export tie points
« on: August 19, 2013, 03:50:00 PM »
Hello,

We have recently bought the AGISOFT. We found it could be very useful if we add the functions to import and export ascii format tie point as

Label, tie point id, x in pixel, y in pixel
...
...

Now Agisoft can import external GPS and IMU data, GCP data and camera file except the external tie points. Without the functions, it will easily get the projects failed when AGISOFT can not generate good matched tie points, it is very hard to use agisoft to do some manual work with hundreds images. But if you have this import function, we still can use AGISOFT to do the rest and use external tools to generate tie points. Or in some other cases, with the export function, we can use AGISOFT generated tie points in other softwares such as INPHO.

Best regards!

Hello Zhijun,

Currently you can export tie points in any desired text format using Python scripting. If you wish I can send you a sample code for that.

It is possible to import cameras with the sparse point cloud in bundler.out format. Have you already checked this feature? Or this format doesn't fit your needs completely? Please also note that you can also export tie-points (sparse point cloud) in Bundler format as well.
Best regards,

Hello Alexey

Thank you for your kind reply!
I will check the blunder.out format and see how it can be used. But I still strongly suggest to add those functions as it is simple to add from your end and it will be easy for clients to use without to spend a lot of time to explore python etc..
Please be awared that many users may not have the computer skills as you expected and they just want to get the project done without cost of too much time.

Best regards!

Thanks,
