Cloud processing thermal mosaics?

Can I use the cloud processing service to mosaic radiometric thermal imagery?

Hi Anthony,

Yes, you can process thermal imagery on our cloud but you will have to create the project on the desktop first and then upload it to cloud. Below I will explain you why.

When uploading directly to the cloud, the dataset will be processed with the 3D maps template which is not suitable for a low-resolution sensor as a thermal one. Hence to obtain satisfactory results, I would recommend the following:

  1. Create a new project on the desktop using the radiometric jpeg or grayscale tiff imagery

  2. Make sure the camera model is correctly assigned to the project

  3. Opt for Thermal Camera template

  4. Upload it to the cloud (see How-to-upload-project-files-from-the-desktop )

Cheers,

Ina

Dear Ina!

We are unable to upload our thermal image based project to the cloud.

We have the following error message (source files can be downloaded from here: https://we.tl/31ukBsgYrJ ):

Thank you for sharing the files with me. I have tested it on my side, and I could not reproduce it.

Could you install the latest version of Pix4Dmapper (4.2.27): https://cloud.pix4d.com/download/.

Also, could it be that the Internet connection is not powerful enough and has some interruptions?

Additionally please note that you should upload teh thermal imagery in one project and teh RGB imagery in another one.

Thank you,

Ina

Dear Ina,

It is working up until 2-3% and than gives an error message again. It is purely a thermal project, no RGB involved. Our internet connection is not super reliable, but I would imagine upload has some protocol implemented to try if there is a small amount of interruption. The error message is slightly different now. But I would guess this must be the internet if you do not have an upload mechanism like dropbox or google drive.

 

Best Regards,

Gabor

The only thing that it puzzles me is that I have successfully uploaded the images from my side. This is the fact that leads me to internet connections.

Would it be possible for you to try uploading using another internet connection?

Hello Ina,

So i am interested in cloud processing for creating a thermal mosaic.  I noticed you referenced https://support.pix4d.com/hc/en-us/articles/202558589-How-to-upload-project-files-from-the-desktop .  I guess I am wondering at what point you do the upload?  Is it before you do any processing on the desktop?  I apologize if I am missing something obvious.

Greg

 

Hi Gregory,

 

Once the settings are done, you can directly upload it to Cloud. No local processing is necessary a priori.

 

Cheers,

Ina
