Defining precise bounding box (before dense reconstruction)
« on: November 14, 2014, 02:09:34 PM »
Is there any way to use XY coordinates to define the reconstruction volume bounding box precisely, rather than visually?

I guess one roundabout approach is adding additional markers with the desired coordinates at each corner and zooming in to set the bounding box visually, but I was wondering if there might be a neater approach?

Thanks, Andy

Hi Andy,
You can set the bounding region using the Python API as discussed in the following forum post:

The bounding region uses an arbitrary coordinate system so you need to transform back and forth between this coordinate system and a geographic coordinate system if you want to set the region using geographic coordinates. I just started working a python script to process a chunk in tiles by resizing and moving the region throughout the project area. I'll post it up as an example when I'm done.
