I used a free trial version of Pano stitching software to stitch together two of our aerial images from last friday. The software detects visual similarities between pictures and overlaps them based on those control points it creates. Here the software used the white soccer field lines to mash the two pictures together.
For our map making we will be using photo stitching software called Pic't Earth. Pic't Earth will use the GPS meta data associated with each of our images to stitch them together and georeference them on a digital map.
