#6 Georeferencing of multi-camera mobile mapping platforms
This tutorial aims at familiarizing the audience with processing of large im-
age sets acquired by multi-head mobile mapping platforms, e.g. Stereopolis 
(cf. Figure 1). We will focus on fine-tuned processing with the goal of obtaining
high-precision image georeferencing. The following aspects will be considered:
– time-efficient computation of the initial solution,
– the influence of the multi-camera relative orientation constraint embedded
in the final bundle block adjustment (BBA),
– insight into the BBA a posteriori stochastic model.
All the processing will take place in MicMac the free open-source software
for photogrammetry .
We will provide the participants with a dataset as well as a document sum-
marizing the processing steps. The software is distributed via github repo:
The tutorial is targeted for both practitioners and researchers interested in the
topic. The participants are expected to be familiar with:
– basic concepts of photogrammetry
– Linux environment or at least the command line
Number of participants
A maximum of 20 participants is expected to attend the tutorial.
