Xcopter drone and SFM techniques


today we will present in CAA2012 in Southampton (GB) the result we obtain using Structure from Motion techniques with aerial images. The hardware we used are:

- KKMulticoper
- Nikon CoolPix S210
- Gopro HD Hero

The software are:

-Python Photogrammetry Toolbox

The picture below shows the three different phases of work (data acquisition, data processing and final result)

The two cameras made different results: the 3D model of the Nikon is more dense, but using the Gopro it is possible to have bigger terrain model.

In the next days we will upload the slides of the presentation.
Thank to Walter Morelli and Walter Gilli which help us in this research.

Thanks to self-archiving I can now add the bibliography related with this post:

 ResearchGate: Article - Presentation

Academia: Article - Presentation

I hope it will be useful, even if no more up to date it can be a starting point to work in Aerial Archeology with Open Software and Hardware.
