Changelog

Features:

  • Video SLAM processing (optional install) see wiki
  • UI Changes:
    • Global settings file
    • project path setting
    • verbose flag
    • parameter name simplification
  • GCP improvements:
    • Allow EXIF override
    • Automatically find gcp_list.txt
    • Use original images for georeferencing
    • Multithreaded
  • add opensfm-processes n flag for memory management
  • expose tone mapping parameter to mvs-texturing
  • Add optional modules in contrib/ directory: NDVI, GRASS DEM, Blender
  • Expose odm_orthophoto settings: BigTIFF, no-tiled, compression type
  • DEM generation using PDAL and a progressive morphological filter
  • More robust installation process (See readme)

Fixes

  • better logging for subprocesses
  • update GDAL for multithreading
  • fix texturing global illumination
  • allow for partial restart of opensfm
  • Minimize Dockerfile
  • and more....

Known Bugs

  • using a GCP file, the resized images must be very close in size to the originals, or it will either fail or come out very weird.
  • OpenSfM uses a lot of memory in systems with a high number of processors. For now, use --opensfm-processes n where n is smaller than your total number of cores (find that out by running nproc)

Changelog for v0.1-RC1

Huge update, we've incorporated a framework for processing along the toolchain and improved the installation process.

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 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
