I'm bit confused. When I process an image set in OpenDroneMap orthophoto creation works really good, also mesh creation (including textures). The only problem that I have is with point cloud. Always has missing data (see images below), I have been testing different parameter settings in settings.yaml file with no succeed.

I use LAS file to create DSM and DEM and this issue affects directly the final result. Does someone know how to solve this problem?

    What is it like near the middle of your swath? As I understand it drone mapping uses raster correlation to create a point cloud not a separate LiDAR sensor - if you don't have two or more images you can't correlate, though it does look like the edge of a swath with terrain/vegetation hiding the ground behind it. – Michael Stimson May 30 '17 at 23:01
  • In road I have an overlapping above 60% between images (3 in this case). Is a plain place, also. In trees I don't see problems like this – aldo_tapia May 30 '17 at 23:07
