Convert to

Convert to command is used to convert TerraPhoto calibration values into system-specific calibration values. TerraPhoto implements the conversion into several common types of system calibrations:

iWitness

Leica RCD

Rollei

US / Applanix

The lens distortion model used in TerraPhoto determines if the calibration values can be converted into a specific system calibration or not. The converted values can be save into a text file.

To convert camera values into system-specific calibration values:

1. Select Convert to from the Tools pulldown menu.

This opens the Convert to outside calibration dialog:

convert_to_outside_calibration

2. Select a calibration to which you want to convert.

3. Define settings, if necessary, and click OK.

This opens the Camera calibration window that shows the converted calibration values. From this window, a text file can be saved or printed by using commands from the File pulldown menu. The commands in the View pulldown menu can be used to change the size of the window.
