Open Source Photogrammetry with OpenDroneMap
OpenDroneMap (ODM) aims to be a full photogrammetric solution for small Unmanned Aircraft (drones), balloons, and kites. ODM acts as a tool for processing highly overlapping unreferenced imagery, turning the unstructured data (simple photos) + GPS into structured data including colorized point clouds, digital surface models, textured digital surface models, and orthophotography.
The project can be found at https://github.com/OpenDroneMap/OpenDroneMap . This session will act as an introduction to OpenDroneMap, give an overview of what the current status of the project is, detail what the anticipated next steps are in the project, and how you can participate as a user and/or developer.
For ODM, 2016 will see smoothed texturing, denser, more accurate point clouds, and other key components to the maturation of the project. Find out how you can participate.
