Background Map
« on: January 15, 2018, 11:28:17 AM »
Hallo,

It would be great if we had a background map like Bing- or Google-Map for orientation of geotagged images to check whether they on the correct position.

Best regards

+1 for this as well. Bing, Google, Mapbox, it really doesn't matter. Just general context imagery would be great.

Hello all,

In the version 1.6.0 (pre-release is already available) it is possible to use Show Basemap button to display either Satellite map or OpenStreetMap as a bottom layer for georeferneced DEMs and orthomosaics. Also the camera locations (if georeferencing is performed) can be displayed in the Ortho view mode.

So this is good for the DEM / Ortho, but the preference would be for the background map to be displayed in the model view as the main need. This way when images are imported and even reprojected, we can validate that it is being done properly. Same with when control is imported, all this is done in model view so having the background map there would be preferred.

It is almost too late in the game to have the background map at the DEM / Ortho view stages, as all the project info is typically set prior to this.

Hello kgover,

Currently in the pre-release you should be able to see the camera locations according to the Reference pane information in the Ortho view over the basemap, which should give an idea, if the coordinate information is correct and correspond to the proper area.
