Cannot place markers on imported points (1.4.1 build 5925)
« on: March 08, 2018, 02:42:02 PM »
Hi,
I just tried to project markers and point shapes on an imported point cloud, and saw that it didn't work. I also noticed that neither markers nor shapes can be projected in the regular Model view. Is this a hard fix?

The context to what I tried is to use old aligned images, and digitise features in them onto a DEM (converted to a point cloud). Sadly that doesn't seem to work... Orthophotos generation and digitising in QGIS works, which is what I will do now,  but doing it in PhotoScan would be much quicker!

Hello Erik,

Can you please specify, if you are trying to put markers/shapes on the cloud in the Model view, or on the images in the Photo view mode?

In the first case, do you have any aligned cameras that contain the area where the marker is placed in the viewport?
Best regards,
Alexey Pasumansky,

Hi,
I tried both placing markers and shapes on the cloud in the Model view, as well as placing markers (Add Marker) and shapes in the Photo view. The marker appears in the reference pane, but with no estimated position.

There are 50 aligned cameras within the same region as the imported point cloud. I've also (semi-) successfully performed dense reconstructions with the aligned images, so there's nothing wrong with the alignment.

The result is not pretty though, as these images are from 1910, so that's why I'm attempting to project features onto a modern DEM instead.
