Photogrammetry on commercial flights (2021)

Airplane window seats offer a unique form of in-flight entertainment: the outside world. But beyond taking photos, what can you do with them? Well, with photogrammetry, you can transform your photos into something cool. For example, by using QGIS, you can map reference points on a photo and project it onto a world map. While this simple transformation may result in some distortions, it still has various applications. It provides open aerial data that you can own and publish, it can be useful for amateur surveying and mapping, and it allows for easy comparison of historical imagery. So why not give it a try?
