Limitations of camera distortion model???
« on: July 01, 2018, 03:46:47 PM »

I have noticed that towards the edge of my dense clouds, where the cloud seems to have been created using a small number of photo-pairs (only 2 perhaps) there occurs a ripple type effect. I'm noticing the same effect in my camera calibration residuals. I'm processing aerial photography from a Phantom 4 Advanced, 20Mpx camera. There are a good number of survey-grade markers in my area of interest and this occurs no matter how many parameters are solved for in the camera distortion model.

Could this be an effect or limitation of the camera model, or in the generation of the depth maps, or something I'm missing in my own techniques?
