Ortho workflow for large area?
« on: July 06, 2012, 06:27:25 AM »
Hi

How do I handle the generation of orthophotos if I have a large project area of photos covering say 100sq km?

Do I load all the photos into a single Photoscan project?
Or do I divide up the area into tiles and process each tile individually as a separate Photoscan project?

thanks in advance

Hello dominoc,

We recommend to perform photo alignment and optimization for all the photos in project in a single chunk.
But in case of very large image sets (or limited system resources) the project could be split into several chunks.

How many photos are there in the projects you are speaking about?

Hi

thanks for the response. I have about 1000 photos in a project.
Looks like I need a machine with ample resources then.

thanks
