I've seen a tutorial about aligning a lidar scan with drone photos to create an amazing model. Now, I have a lidar scan of an interior of a building and 170 photos of some details, such as the elevator entrances and stairs. Since the floor is low textured with very few features detected, I need Faro scan to provide the correct geometry information and photos to add some details to the scan.
My pipeline is:
1. align all the photos and export as one component, 'photos'.
2. align the faro scan data.
3. import the photo component to the Faro project, then click 'align'. In the align setting, I set both 'force component rematch' and 'merge component only' as true.
However, it comes out still two separate components, one is faro data, and the other is 'photos'. I've tried to add control points, but it doesn't work. These two components still cannot be aligned.
Is it because the data is not sufficient? Should I add more photos or take more lidar scans?
Or there are other ways to help me align these two kinds of data?
