It might be possible to do the dewarping on the fly on the Pi; it’s certainly worth checking to see how long it takes per image on there.
To do the same processing he did on his image, you’d just install ImageMagick, download his image, and use the same command line he did:

This is mostly of the Portland Mini MakerFaire. Amazing that it’s “mini”, I can’t imagine what the largest ones are like. An amazing experience…

Yeah, might be simpler than figuring out what’s up with SimpleCV, but then, there is the matter, as you point out, of splitting the video into images and reconstructing the video from the output images, which is possibly not super-easy. There’s also the matter of determining those DePolar parameters; the dewarp script allows you to do that…[Read more]

Steve – check this out, this guy did the exact same thing, and he simply used ImageMagick to convert the image… seems a lot easier than that python script that Kathryn Scott used:
Oddly, his image quality is far better… have no idea what he might have done differently…

Posted this on reddit a week ago, it’s got about 20,000 hits over the 3-day period, not bad. A map of all the native peoples of North America, started as an open project.
… Reminds me, we need to set up our 2nd maptime. It’s already been over a month.

There is an area in Ames that is currently a parking lot that I’d like to help make into a common area. Unfortunately, despite the huge benefits, people are afraid of losing parking. I want to demonstrate clearly what the situation with parking is in the area. My idea is to set up a few cameras on bicycles that will sit and record a timelapse…[Read more]
