We’re setting up a group of volunteers to do some fixed point photography of leaky dams and flood events. Does anyone have any recommendations of apps or programmes for fixed point photography? I’m wanting to do two things, which could be in different apps if necessary.
Firstly, we want to use a previous photo as a template to make sure the photos can be compared. Unfortunately we can’t put camera posts in at the location. I’ve found an app called fixed point camera beta which works well but only for android devices. Does anyone know of an equivalent for iPhone?
Secondly, we’d like to stitch the photos together to make a timelapse video and see how it changes over time. Is there an app or computer programme that does this?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
Cant help you with the fixed point photo app, but stitching together photos for a time-lapse is pretty simple, you can do it in windows movie maker, put all your photos in a folder, order by date, drag and drop all your photos into a timeline then fiddle around with timings until you are happy with the video.
Marc Naura from RRC mentioned at the Catchment Data User Group meeting this week that they are releasing a fixed point photography app soon – I think he said in the new year.
You should be able to contact him via the RRC website, or via the CDUG sharepoint site, or ping me an email and I’ll put you in touch.
They also have a short guide which might be useful:
