Why is Match AT suited better for planes compared to UASMaster? WHat about fixed-wing UAVs?

Question asked by Thomas Koch on May 29, 2017

Smaller UAV images in general (fixed-wing and multicopters) are quite different from classic aerial cameras in big planes. Orientation angles are larger and their changes are more extreme (the flight is a lot less stable). Furthermore, UAV imagery often shows more motion blur etc. and of course the ground resolution is much higher (think about grass in the wind). All this needs different strategies and matching techniques to be applied to successfully match tie points. 
Another point is that UAV images typically are small enough to be read completely into the computers' memory - for larger aerial images, the TIFFs are too large for that, so also here I/O of images is optimized for one or the other case in UASMaster or in MATCH-AT.
