The protocols detailed above will generate high quality image and ancillary data required to build consistent structural and spectral models of tundra landscapes. There are many approaches to generating these models, and the step-by-step details change frequently as technology and software develops. We currently do most of our processing using the two industry standard software environments: Agisoft Photoscan Pro and Pix4D.
An excellent tutorial on the general Photoscan workflow can be found here:
Many other general tutorials for both Pix4D and Photoscan are available on YouTube.
Data processing for 2017 will be centralized, most likely using a workflow from one or both of the above software environments. This will be laid out in detail after the field season and will be another chance for input from various teams.
We will also build a general tutorial for generating these models, but that will have to wait until after the field season!
