Oblique images can be used standalone or incorporated into the photogrammetry process to be included on the orthomosaic or model that is generated. Nadir imagery is generally not sufficient to build an accurate point cloud of a site that contains vertical surfaces. By combining oblique and nadir imagery you can generate a single point cloud or mesh of a structure and its surroundings. Furthermore you can combine 2 or more surveys that overlap each other to have results that cover a larger area, even if there is no oblique imagery used. All of this can now be easily done directly from the Site Scan Manager’s feature: “Merge Flights”.

Start by clicking on your Projects tab and selecting the Project that contains the Flights you want to combine. You want to make sure that they were flown in the same site under similar lighting conditions and elevation, or if you want to cover a larger area on a single output file, that the Flights overlap each other. 

Once you’ve chosen a Project that contains multiple flights that you can combine, you’ll see the “Merge Flights” button on the top right hand side. 

Click on it once to select the Flights in your Project you'd like to merge. This will require you to name the resulting Flight from the Merge you’re about to perform. After you give it a name click “Merge”.

You'll notice the Merge Flights box will show the image counter at the bottom. Please make sure to stay within the 2500 image limit. 

Now all you have to do is wait for this Merge to finish processing, after which you can export the files as you would with any other Flight in Site Scan.
