"Eric van Rees is a freelance writer and editor. His specialty is GIS technology. Currently, he writes about geospatial technology, programming and web development. 
- OpenDroneMap (ODM) is an open source project for processing aerial drone imagery, developed by members from OSGEO, the Open Source Geospatial Foundation. While the name OpenDroneMap might sound like a relative of the world map of OpenStreetMap, it’s something entirely different, although still related to open source.
- ODM is the name of an open source toolkit for processing aerial drone imagery, developed by members of OSGEO that was started around five years ago and made quite some progress in the last year. 
- It now offers modern photogrammetry technology for drones and other low altitude image collection such as balloons and kites and does fully automated matching, digital surface modeling and mosaicking. Stereo vision is used or creating orthophotos and maps, which is a process of extracting 3D information from multiple 2D views of a scene.
ODM´s photogrammetry pipeline
ODM follows a five-step photogrammetry workflow, that starts after aerial imagery has been captured by a drone that can do automated flights and is equipped with a GPS unit and camera. These drone images have to be offloaded into a PC with ODM software installed. ODM can be installed in various ways, the easiest way being a Windows web installer called WebODM, where you create a user account, upload imagery, build a task and execute the following workflow below."

"Planned features for the WebODM application are DEM display, mission planning, and a mobile app for autonomous flights. As there ODM does not yet cover the data capture process, users are dependent on mission planning software from their drone vendor/provider. Also in the works are integration with the open source GIS software QGIS and OpenAerialMap, a set of tools for searching and sharing open satellite and drone imagery, as well as integration with Entwine, a data organization library for massive point clouds, and Greyhound, a point cloud streaming framework for dynamic web services and native applications."
