OpenDroneMap — Orthophotos and Textured Mesh (Habitats)

ODM shows some promise in mapping out microhabitats as on display with Michele Tobias & Alex Mandel’s dataset of hot air balloon derived images of Coal Oil Point Reserve, Goleta, CA.

Here is one of the raw images:

And here’s a visualization of the small topographic and surface model variation derived from using ODM from the dataset.

edit: I’m really looking forward to trying this out in sedge habitats… .
