Jose Augusto Santaella has been doing some great mapping work with his APM-powered Maja. Check out his mosaic gallery here

Cool! That looks great.

what are you using to assemble the mosaics.

Comment by Christiaan van Vollenstee on July 11, 2012 at 11:29pm

Hello,

 

Did you just use a gopro auto snap, and I am also interested on what software you use to asseble the image.

Awesome!

You guys could try my bash script to create automated mosaics from 2D images using Hugin / Pantools from the command line. The next step would be to use GDAL to geo-reference the mosaic or use other tools to perform the orthorectification.

Heavy Linux/Unix knowledge required. Cheers

Hi guys,
As you can see, it is a process and not only one software to result in it. JP sent a great post about mosaic processing... Here we are doing a similar service for UAV users with our know how and providing a solution for aerial imagery processing.

Usually, the cameras for aerial photo like that are fixed lens (non zoom) and large CCD sensor. I use RICOH compact cameras.

thanks. you are correct it is a process that you need to link together if possible or write your own tools. Here is a very basic script to build a geo-referenced mosaic using gdal. It is essentially the next step and also a different method for building mosaics. Generating a JPGw / worldfile for each 2D image is the key.

This script does the re-projection and rectification. It is very basic and can be greatly expanded. Cheers

Thank you JP for adding your valuable comments, surely the people will begin to understand more about the process and also give more value to this kind of work.
Keep in touch...

no problem! keep up the great work and happy to help. 

hope this helps some map makers out there. best, JP
