Talk:Vertical Aerial Photographs

I added a summary of issues and considerations for kites, rc models and quadcopters, but maybe this should go on a separate page. I also added the information on the rectification software which also may be better on that separate page. I'm going to make a tutorial about rectifying home-made imagery using hugin later.

Yes I think we need to spit out this page so that all of these 'homebrew' sections get their own dedicated wiki page and this page would just have summary.
The rest of the page above and below the 'homebrew' section needs merge/moving. See below discussion

Partially merge with Aerial Imagery then rename "Aerial photography techniques"

Above and below the 'homebrew' section we have some messy lists "Vertical Aerial Photographs" sources. That's very much a duplication of what is on the Aerial imagery page currently, although some of this messy list may be only "potential" imagery sources (unclear license for example). If theres' any of those, they could be moved to Potential Datasources perhaps.

Having blown away all of that, we'd be left with just the "homebrew" section and I think the page could be renamed something like "Aerial photography techniques"

Homebrew tools

Just making a note here, partially for myself, that I have tried to find a page with collected information related to drone / quadcopter mapping, especially for georeferencing and stitching imagery, but found really nothing useful. I am trying to find free stuff under Linux. --grin 09:44, 11 August 2017 (UTC)

Group by summer vs. winter

Idea: OSM editors should group imagery by the two seasons, at least for temperate climates. Because the difference, vegetation versus no vegitation is much more salient than any other major grouping. Yes I'm talking about an Ideal World many years from now. Jidanni (talk) 10:05, 11 September 2022 (UTC)
