Processing, merging & replacing subregions

Hi there,

I’m working on a large project (ca. 5.000 imgs) that is largely optimized. I.e. a lot of MTPs as well as GCPs have been added. However, there is one area that cannot be optimized. There is a tilt/shift in the generated ATP like seen here: Vertical Shift between Flight Blocks.
I would like to try to process this sub-area again. Since p4d does not offer the possibility to calculate a sub-region in Step 1. Initial Processing, I will have to calculate a new project with selected images (or did I miss something?). I will insert the MTPs / GCPs from the project that has already been calculated there. (I already know that there will be no tilts with other calculation settings). If I want to merge the projects afterwards, the tilt from the old ATP point cloud will be most likely retained. How can I completely replace this area with the new one? A recalculation of the old large sub-region is actually out of the question for reasons of time.

Kind regards

If I understand you correctly, you should be able to replace it with the new one if you merge the results of A and B:

A: Process images without the images of the sub-area
B: Process with images of the sub-area

Hi Yuka, thanks for the reply.
That’s not exactly what I asked for.

I already processed A and B in one project - lets say AB. I’am reprocessing sub-area B now and would like to merge it to the existing AB project but reject the false B sub-area from the AB project. As I already said reprocessing A would be the worst for reasons of time.

Is it possible to edit (clip) the Automatic Tie Points files (result_tracks2/3_full_1.las) by polygon and delete the false sub-area B?


Thank you for the explanation. I am afraid to say that Automatic Tie Points (ATPs) cannot be edited. ATPs are generated from the key points that are automatically detected in the images; thus, they will be difficult to delete. Apologize for the inconvenience.
