manually calibrating images

the images “uncalibrated” in the image are over heavy canopy so I understand that it has some difficulty and perhaps next time capture higher … was captured at~400’. Couple of questions …

  1. Are the red ‘x’ indicating attempts to calibrate?
  2. If I manually add tie points, what is the minimum tie points?
  3. Is there any guide on performing these steps?


here is an example, this isolated uncalibrated tile has many red ‘+’ shown on the right … are these tie points determined or? if not, I assume I need to identify manual tie points in the image and if so, one from each corner and another in the center? I am not interested in this case to have the DSM, only the ortho


Thank you for your message.
The red crosses refer to automatic keypoints that are not matched with any keypoint of other images.

You can find more information here, you can try to manually calibrate a camera:

This is a typical issue for a vegetation project, which normally are not easy to reconstruct.
