geocpset - adds control points based on geometric position


   geocpset [-o output.pto] input.pto


   geocpset is a tool for panoramas which contains featureless images,
   e.g.  sky images. In this images a control point detector does not find
   control points. geocpset analyses the positions of the images in
   project files.  Then it adds control points to these images which are
   not connected by control points. The control points are set only be the
   geometric positions of the images and not by the image content. So
   geocpset should only used with projects which have assigned rough image


    geocpset -o output.pto input.pto

   If the --output/-o switch is missing then the suffix "_geo" is added to
   the filename.

   The indented workflow is

   #1 First create project file
       pto_gen -o project.pto *.jpg

   #2 Then assign rough positions to images
       pto_var --set y=i*20-40,p=0,r=0 -o project.pto project.pto

   #3 Now run a "normal" control point detector, e.g. only on overlapping
       cpfind --prealigned -o project.pto project.pto

   #4 And finally connect all unconnected images
       geocpset -o project.pto project.pto


   -o|--output output.pto
       Output a pto file with the given filename. If not given it will
       append "_geo" to the input filename.

       By default geocpset adds only control points to unconnected images.
       With this switch you can force to add a geometric control point to
       each overlap, which is not connect by control points or linked with
       image positions.

       By default geocpset takes only image pairs into account which
       overlap more than 10 %. If you have very narrow overlaps you can
       decrease this value to take also such small overlaps into account,
       e.g.  --min-overlap=1
