Import Orthomosaic Maps

Allow the ability to import orthomosaics as an additional map to explore and compare to the maps processed in DD. Currently you can import a CAD overlay such as PNG but the system attempts to identify and erase the background of the drawing. Allow a geotagged orthomosaic to be imported in the same way but unaltered and if not geotagged allow manual alignment but without attempting to convert certain colors in the image to a transparent background.

I believe this is possible? Overlay…

Consultant, this is already implemented. When viewing a project in a folder with multiple maps you can compare the two maps to one another.


Or is this what you mean? The link to “Upload your GeoTIFF here.”

Yes, that works as long as it’s geotagged. I mistakenly mentioned uploading geotagged files. What I was looking for is the ability to upload a non-geotagged file, manually align it with an existing map, and use the compare feature to compare between the two. Not possible.

An non-georeferenced orthomosaic? I would doubt that it would be very accurate or line up unless it was exported from a georeferenced map. I have tried Microsoft ICE and while it stitches well it produces a product as you are mentioning and it is increasingly garbage as site get larger.
