Beta v0.1 Release and Changelog

Dakota Benjamin

OpenDroneMap users,


Tomorrow we will be publishing a huge update. We've incorporated a processing framework for the ODM toolchain and improved the installation process. If you've been using the "dev" branch on GitHub recently, this is nothing new for you. Read below for the changelog and watch for another email tomorrow when the release is finalized.  

Installation

  • cmake superbuild for all components
  • Now you will run the following to install or update ODM:
bash ./configure.sh
mkdir build && cd build && cmake .. && make && cd ..

# copy paste the following (with correct directory structure) into your ~/.bashrc (or other preferred method) (requires logout/in to work)
export PYTHONPATH=$PYTHONPATH:<ODMDIR>/SuperBuild/install/lib/python2.7/dist-packages:<ODMDIR>/SuperBuild/src/opensfm
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:<ODMDIR>/SuperBuild/install/lib

Running ODM

Use these instructions to run the processing script. Note there are significant differences from the previous version, namely you have to specify --project-path 

Code restructure

  • Object Oriented Code
  • Ecto processing framework
  • Project tree:
    • Your ODM project will have a more organized structure. One big change is that your images must be placed in a "images/" subdirectory in the project folder.
  • Testing framework

Feature additions / changes

  • Add XYZ pointcloud output
  • benchmarking with --time
  • Replacement of LASTools with PDAL
  • Control script updates - --rerun-from--rerun-all
  • Remove local ccd_defs in lieu of OpenSfM sensor data file.

Please email me with questions or comments. If you want to use the updates before the release, simply run "git checkout dev" and use the installation method above. 

Happy Processing!
Dakota

Hello Dakota,

Thanks for the information. As of now, what is the difference between the release zip file vs. https://github.com/OpenDroneMap/OpenDroneMap/wiki/1.-Installation? If we were to follow the instructions from the wiki, would we get the same release that you have sent the email for?

Thanks much.

Re: [OpenDroneMap-dev] Beta v0.1 Release and Changelog

Dakota Benjamin

I removed some repository-specific images and the test data to make the zip file (much) smaller.  It should in no way impact the running of the program, but if there are issues let me know.

Re: [OpenDroneMap-dev] Beta v0.1 Release and Changelog

Kshitij Sharma
Hello Dakota,

I have used ODM on similar sized Ubuntu server before and after update. I ran the two versions on the same set of images. However, the version after the update does not provide repeatable results. I did a quick comparison and there is a difference in the quality and extent of the image.

Prior to the update, a set of mining images generated a very high quality GeoTIFF. The size of the image was also huge - the TIFF was about 2Gigs with really good detail. Post update, the same geotiff is merely 180KB and there are no details to focus on the image. I had run pretty much the default command line parameters there.

Could you please help understand the difference and discrepancy?

Thanks,
kshitij

Can you post a sample of the differences in the orthophoto?

Re: [OpenDroneMap-dev] Beta v0.1 Release and Changelog

I think I know what might be the problem, but I'll need more information. What is happening is the orthophoto is being improperly scaled. 


How do you georeference your photos? using EXIF or gcp_list.txt?

Hi,

I am trying to figure out the way to transfer this file to you:
$ ls -larth odm_orthphoto.tif
-rw-rw-r-- 1 ubuntu ubuntu 2.1G May 24 23:30 odm_orthphoto.tif

The one created by the new version is attached here. Sorry, it is not 188K, but approx. 1M. I am sorry for the confusion.

Thanks,
kshitij
