We use a UAV equipped with the Geodetics Point & Pixel system. This system allows us to accurately geo-tag the photos taken during the flight. Once the photos are geo-tagged a “GeoLocationSummary.txt” file is created along with the new accurately geotagged photos. A sample of the GeoLocationSummary looks like this:
DSC00957.JPG, 22:18:38.5039, 48.293196955, -116.572120035, 630.722, -140.9275, -2.5646, 131.5318
DSC00958.JPG, 22:18:40.5202, 48.293211194, -116.572098213, 631.192, -138.5756, -2.7195, 132.3664
DSC00959.JPG, 22:18:42.5077, 48.293195626, -116.572117161, 631.425, -139.9435, -3.1159, 132.3749
It seems to me this is in the format of FILENAME, GPS TIME, LAT., LONG., ELEV. and then YAW, PITCH, ROLL?
Can we use this .txt to take advantage of “Accurate Geolocation and Orientation”, during Step 1? When starting a new project, Pix4D reads the EXIF data of the geo-tagged photos, but does not fill in the whole table, just Lat., Long., and Elev. In “Image Properties” under “Geolocation and Orientation” we try the “From File” option. This prompts us to tell Pix4D what format the geolocation and orientation file is in. We have tried several of of the import options. The result is usually an error from Pix4D expecting a different format. Can I reformat the information in the “GeoLocationSummary.txt” to a format accepted by Pix4D?
