Scale on orthophoto
« on: January 04, 2013, 04:17:12 PM »

I have only one question, I'm using photoscan for building archaeology and I need orthophotos of my walls but I have one problem : when I want to put my orthophotos at the same scale to do a plate of my building, I fiddle with the images. Is it possible to add a scale next the model, when it's georeferenced, on the orthophoto with Photoscan ?

Hi Lins

I havn't found such a feature in Photoscan yet. I am also working with archaeological architecture. I usually plan in the field which wall I want to have an orthophoto of. Then I glue two markers on it, on an exact waterline, and measure the distance. I open the exported orthophotos in Photoshop and then adjust the distance between the markers with the extremly exact measure tool of Photoshop. I can also rotate the picture in order to get an exact horizontal in the picture. I think that workflow works terrific.
