Orthophoto editing Software
« on: January 09, 2015, 10:40:34 AM »
Hello all,

i'm looking for a software (free or commercial) to edit exported orthophotos - format GeoTIFF(.tif) !

The goal would be to retouch for example vehicles or people on areal orthofoto or perform color adjustments.

Does anyone have a good tip?



I'am also looking for a SW which allows to automatically improve - radiometric adjustments,...-  whole image stacks (500 pics and more) to get the best results in photoscan.
 
Many thanks for your inputs

I'm using Photoshap CS5 with the Avenza Geographic Imager plugin (to handle georeferenced images).
This allows importing individual orthorectified images in separate layers and manually applying progressive fusion masks.
Of course Photoshop has a complete toolbox for retouching and colour correction.
Requires some manual editing, but I don't think a fully automated solution will ever exist.

You can also mask details on some photos that you don't want to be used in final orthophoto.. That's the way to get rid of broken roofs etc.

Best regards,

Hi,

what about GIMP? Is there a plugin to import and save geotiff (.tiff) files?

Would be great!
