After you have captured your survey photos you will need to prepare your photos for your ortho-mosaic generation software. The steps below will explain how to convert RAW to TIFF images. If you captured images in JPG only, you can skip to calibration (if necessary).
The RAW & JPG images were saved in the Photo folder inside the DCIM folder of the SD card. We recommend you move the DCIM folder from the SD card to your computer hard drive to speed up processing times. Create a new folder inside the DCIM folder named something such as "Processed".
Download and install MAPIR Camera Control (MCC) to begin processing.
On the Process tab select your camera model from the drop down menus. Click the browse buttons and select your input and output file locations. Then click the "Process Images" button to begin the conversion of the RAW to TIFF images.
The images will be processed as quickly as possible based on the speed of your computer. It may take awhile so please be patient. When the process is complete the log window will let you know it's complete.
You are now ready to load the images into your ortho-mosaic generation software. If you have captured multi-spectral reflectance data we recommend calibrating your images for the best results.
