Note this is currently not working under wine so all photo processing needs to be done on the windows box.

Processing the Raw RCD105 Images to Tiff

  1. Load the Leica photo processing software
    • Under Windows, select start->programs->leica->calibration->Calibration Post Processing
    • If using wine, run "leica_photo_processing" - currently only works as mggr.
  2. Select the appropriate camera config (Parameters)
    • As of late 2009, this is CH39_021_060
    • There may be updates to this as the camera is recalibrated
      • At the start of 2010 the camera has been modified to use more of the CCD (in calibration - final images may still be the same size). We have a different calibration file for all data collected from start of 2010. (These are currently set up in the processing software. If data prior to 2010 needs to be re-processed then the calibration files will need to be changed and an older version of processing software installed.)
  3. Select the input files
    • Typically this will be something like ~airborne/workspace/IPY09_11-2009_219_Helheim/leica/rcd/images
  4. Ensure both Auto Contrast and Adaptive Left-Right Balance are selected.
  5. Select the output directory
    • Typically this will be something like ~airborne/workspace/IPY09_11-2009_219_Helheim/leica/rcd/proc_images
  6. Select 16 bit TIFF output (this is important! )
  7. Hit the start button and go for coffee (allow about 20-30secs per file)

A typical processing setup looks like:
