Thermal Image Alignment using RGB Images
« on: November 24, 2022, 10:39:05 AM »
Hello everyone,

I'm trying to process drone thermal images taken inside of a tunnel  :-[
Most of the images fail to align which is understandable as there is no location data and there are very few key points (<10,000 per image).
The RGB images taken simultaneously (using the M300 with H20T) all align without any problems.

So I'm wondering if there is any way to align the RGB images, transfer the orientation of the RGB images to the corresponding Thermal images, and use those orientation parameters to help with alignment.
Would this be possible? Would this even help with Thermal alignment?

Thank you for your consideration!

Hi Corensia,

just an idea, what about processing as camera rig, where the RGB photos are used for alignment?
