Place Rpc Tree

r_place_rpc_treePlace Rpc Tree tool enables the manual placement of RPC trees. The tree’s location, height and width can be set based on images and laser data.

The tool creates RPC cells which are linked with RPC files on the hard disk. The default directory set in TerraPhoto for storing RPC files is C:/TERRA/RPC. If such a folder does not exist, the application asks for browsing to another directory when the tool is selected. If a view is rendered, the cells are replaced by the RPC files. The tool requires that RPC files are available.

For more information about RPC trees and rendering, see Section TerraPhoto Rendering.
