I´ve been trying to process an area of 1500 hectares. The area is composed by 6000 photos taken by a drone ebee. I started the process 8 days ago and it haven´t finished yet. The process is being undertaken in a very strong computer but still I don´t know why it is taking me so long!
Below I summarize the characteristics of the project and the processing machine.
Area = 1500 hectares
Number of photos = 6000
Front overlap = 80
Side overlap = 70
Intended pixel size = 5cm/pixel
Processor = Intel® Core™ i7-5930K Processor (15M Cache, up to 3.70 GHz)
RAM = HyperX Savage 64GB (8 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820104656)
Video = PNY Quadro K4200 VCQK4200-PB 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Workstation
Hard Disk = Kingston SHSS37A/960G 2.5" 960GB SATA III
Hard Disk 2 = Western Digital WD2001FASS 2 TB Caviar Black SATA 3 GB/s 7200 RPM 64 MB Cache
Hard Disk 3 = Western Digital WD2001FASS 2 TB Caviar Black SATA 3 GB/s 7200 RPM 64 MB Cache
Please could anyone give a hint to make this project to run faster?
