Dot3D Tutorial: Registering Multiple DP Scans with AprilTags in Dot3D Pro
This DotProduct video tutorial walks us through the full procedure to register 2 DP scans to each other using just AprilTag targets and Dot3D Pro (3.2 or higher). The two scans shown comprise the first and second floor of a house under construction, each captured with the DPI-10 and optimized separately beforehand.
