Good day everyone with an Inspire 1 and Zenmuse X3.

I have a problem that I cannot solve.
I need to purchase software to stitch my mainly planar projection panoramas or maps, orthomosaics or whatever you want to call it.
I use Maps Made Easy and DJI GS Pro to capture the images.

I mainly work with sites involving railway lines - which is mainly straight, for kilometres, as we all know.
My problem is, whatever software I work with, these lines are always curved in one way or another.

I have tried Photoshop, Autopano Giga, Microsoft ICE and others from friends and collegues.
The only software that has the slightest manner of success, is Agisoft Photoscan Professional, which I cannot afford. The other problem is that the software is more suited to 3D modelling and distorts many straight lines like power lines etc.

I have tried pre-calibrating the lens distortion with Adobe Camera RAW, Photoshop Filters, *.lcp lens correction profiles - you name it.
Autopano seems to fail on "viewpoint" and for the others I am not sure.

I hope someone can help as this is ultra frustrating.

Try Pix4D or DroneDeploy.

Agree on the suggestion to checkout Pix4d - you are seeking to create orthomosaics not panoramas.

I use the paid version of DroneDeploy and it works great.  There is a free version that allows you to do 5 maps and 3D projections a month at a 5cm/px resolution.

As was stated Pix4D or DroneDeploy for orthomosaics

Both will do the trick  =)
