Attitude computation

Attitude computation

Attitude computation category defines how to compute camera rotation from input angles. This effects mainly the creation of image lists using the Compute list command.

Three angles is not enough to explicitly define a rotation. In addition, the order in which those angles are applied must be fixed as well. Most IMU systems use the order Heading Pitch Roll.




Order in which to apply angles. The possible choices are:

Heading roll pitch

Heading pitch roll - this is the standard order used by common IMU systems.

Roll pitch heading
