Changing units - Meters to Feet
« on: January 27, 2017, 09:25:12 PM »
Hey folks -
I'm new to Agisoft... I have been using another software for quite sometime, but wanted to try PhotoScan based on some great reviews.
So far, so good!

Hoping someone can help me out with understanding the unit display in the software.

First, some quick info:
I am using PhotoScan version 1.2.6 (trial) and have a UAV based project utilizing 288 aerials taken with a Phantom 3 Pro. The coordinate system for the project has been set to NAD83/BLM 11N, with units set to US Survey Feet. I am also utilizing survey grade GCP's captured with respect to the same datum.

My issue:
Based on the coordinate projection, I assumed that the display units within the model view, etc would be based on US Survey Feet. However, all measurements (linear and volumetric) are displayed in meters.

I hope that someone can explain where to find the option to simply display all units in US Feet. Or, perhaps explain that this is not currently an option.  :-\

Any help is appreciated!
