Yaw Pitch Roll + Omega Pho Kappa
« on: February 06, 2016, 11:27:47 AM »
Could you please illustrate yaw,pitch,roll + omega, phi, kappa that is used in Photoscan?
Pix4D have nice illustrations:

I only found this description in the manual (no images):
Rotation angles in PhotoScan are defined around the following axes: yaw axis runs from top to bottom,
pitch  axis  runs  from  left  to  right  wing  of  the  drone,  roll  axis  runs  from  tail  to  nose  of  the  drone.  Zero
values of the rotation angle triple define the following camera position aboard: camera looks down to the
ground, frames are taken in landscape orientation, and horizontal axis of the frame is perpendicular to the
central (tail-nose) axis of the drone. If the camera is fixed in a different position, respective yaw, pitch,
roll values should be input in the camera correction section of the Settings dialog. The senses of the angles
are defined according to the right-hand rule
