MS-Image Composite Editor (64 bit)

Image Composite Editor (ICE) is an advanced panoramic image stitcher. Given a set of overlapping photographs of a scene shot from a single camera location, the app creates a seamless high-resolution panorama. ICE can also create a panorama from a panning video, including stop-motion action overlaid on the background. Finished panoramas can be shared and viewed in 3D on the Photosynth web site, or saved in a variety of image formats.

ConservationDrones – Post Processing

Commercial software: Producing ortho-rectified 2D photo-mosaics and 3D Digital Surface Models

The most straightforward method of post processing aerial photographs is to stitch them together using commercially available software, such as Kolor AutoPano Giga, PIX4D, Agisoft PhotoScan and others. The resultant mosaic is essentially a near real-time land-use and land-cover map that could be used for monitoring land-use change. Most of these software packages are very easy to use, and some of them can produce not only ortho-rectified 2D photo-mosaics but also 3D Digital Surface Models. However, they can cost between several hundreds to over ten thousand dollars. Microsoft offers a free Image Composite Editor that could be used for a quick-and-dirty stitching job. However, it does not ortho-rectify the resultant product, nor does it create 3D models.

MapKnitter – Make maps from aerial photos

Creating a map from a set of aerial photos

Learn to turn aerial images into maps with the Public laboratory’s open source MapKnitter.org tool. Upload an image, rotate, distort and stretch it onto a reference map, and use the transparency and outline modes to check how close the fit is. Then export to GeoTiff or OpenLayers/TMS.

 

Flight Riot
