Discussions relevant to the Center for Machine Perception MultiView Stereo (CMPMVS) system written by Michael Jancosek including tutorials and uses for reconstructing 3D images with mapping images


Discussions about Clustering Views for Multi-view Stereo (CMVS) designed by Yasutaka Furukawa to divide and cluster parallel sets of structure from motion (SFM) data in 3D reconstructions


SFM GeoRef

Discussions in relation to Structure from Motion Geo-referencing (SFM GeoRef) software program designed by Mike James which uses observations from SFM images to generate to produce real world coordinates from point clouds

ImageJ / Fiji

Discussions involving the Fiji (also known as ImageJ) image processing package that is used in conjunction with the PhotoMonitoring plugin created by Ned Horning to properly render NDVI images from IR filer adjusted cameras


Discussions that utilize the Palentier software program designed by Mark Willis that scales, orients, and projects UAV images onto real world mapping systems utilizing telemetry data from mapping pictures.


Discussions about MeshLab system developed by Paulo Cignoni and Guido Ranzuglia used to process and edit unstructured triangular 3D meshes is typically used in conjunction with other open source software to post process UAV mapping images
