Aeriality version 1.1 is out now, check it out at www.aeriality.io.
But, first things first, thanks everyone at DIYD for your support. I've had over 100 downloads of the Aeriality software so far, and lots of great interactions with people in the community. You all rock.
What is Aeriality?
Aeriality is a program that takes your aerial videos and creates orthophoto-like strip-map images.
It turns this...
You can see several longer examples here.
It gets great results in minutes instead of hours, and it is a lot simpler than stitching still photos. Its fantastic... as long as strip-map imagery is something you're into. If not, thats cool too. I won't judge.
I've added some awesome new features for the latest release (and hopefully only a few new bugs).
New in Aeriality v1.1:
Automatic Processing and Alignment - Just load up your video, select the start time and stop time, and then hit the sweep button. You don't have to enter your camera settings or flight speed any more, Aeriality automatically figures that out, and then it goes and makes you a nice image. It also lines up the image within the strip to account for any side-to-side or roll motions.
Free Videos Every Month - Its free! Well, a little bit free (engineers gotta eat too). Use it free on up to 3 videos each month. And make unlimited images from each video.
Aeriality is improving all the time, and there are plenty of features in the development pipeline including geo-registration and multi-strip stiching. But I am eager to get this out there as it is, to let you all try it and see if it does something you like.
