My task is to create before/after photo visualization of a wind turbine which is planned to build.
A photo is taken from a point of known coordinates, and coordinates of a turbine are also known.
How to accurately place this turbine into the photo?
What I already do is to identify some object on the photo and on an aerial photo. Then I measure distance on the aerial photo map to this object and estimate its heiht. Next I measure a height of this object in the photo in pixels and by proportion calculate height of the turbine.
It's very rough calculation because real object heiht estimation is biased.
Next problem is with a direction where to place the turbine. I tried some angular calculations, but they were rather misleading and I ended up with drawing line from point to turbine and further, and looking on what background I should place the turbine.
If you have any ideas how do this smarter and more accurately, please share.
