NAME
       geocpset - adds control points based on geometric position

SYNOPSIS
       geocpset [-o output.pto] input.pto

DESCRIPTION
       geocpset is a tool for panoramas which contains featureless images,
       e.g.  sky images. In this images a control point detector does not find
       control points. geocpset analyses the positions of the images in
       project files.  Then it adds control points to these images which are
       not connected by control points. The control points are set only be the
       geometric positions of the images and not by the image content. So
       geocpset should only used with projects which have assigned rough image
       positions.

USAGE
        geocpset -o output.pto input.pto

       If the --output/-o switch is missing then the suffix "_geo" is added to
       the filename.

       The indented workflow is

       #1 First create project file
           pto_gen -o project.pto *.jpg

       #2 Then assign rough positions to images
           pto_var --set y=i*20-40,p=0,r=0 -o project.pto project.pto

       #3 Now run a "normal" control point detector, e.g. only on overlapping
       images
           cpfind --prealigned -o project.pto project.pto

       #4 And finally connect all unconnected images
           geocpset -o project.pto project.pto

OPTIONS
       -o|--output output.pto
           Output a pto file with the given filename. If not given it will
           append "_geo" to the input filename.

       -e|--each-overlap
           By default geocpset adds only control points to unconnected images.
           With this switch you can force to add a geometric control point to
           each overlap, which is not connect by control points or linked with
           image positions.

       --min-overlap=NUM
           By default geocpset takes only image pairs into account which
           overlap more than 10 %. If you have very narrow overlaps you can
           decrease this value to take also such small overlaps into account,
           e.g.  --min-overlap=1

       -h|--help
           Display help.
