I have a file full of photo's taken with a 3DR drone over a small coffee farm in Peru. My intention is to create an Orthomosaic of these photos and than use the mosaic to automate a vegetation analysis all with open source software.
I have tested AirPhotoSE, but I am running into an 'IO Error' after importing my photos and the program crashes constantly.
VisualSFM was similarly unsuccessful. Despite having downloaded the supplementary applications ( SiftGPU, PBA, and VLFeat SIFT), whenever I attempt to 'Compute Missing Matches' I get these error messages:
ERROR: siftgpu failed the detection test!! SIFT: 0000, 4000x3000, ERROR1 ERROR: unable to locate sift binary.
I am wondering if anyone can suggest another program or approach I can take. QGIS seems like a good next program to test.
Can QGIS make georectified orthomosaics of a group of jpegs?
