Creating Your Own

BoofCV provides an application for generating your own custom calibration target. It allows you to specify which pattern you wish to use, the paper, and other specifications. A command line interface as well as a graphics interface are provided. The graphical interface gives you live preview as you adjust settings.

cd boofcv
./gradlew applicationsJar
java -jar applications/applications.jar CreateCalibrationTarget

The last line above will run the application with no arguments. This will print out up to date instructions. At the end of the instructions are examples for each target type on letter sized paper. If you wish to have a GUI when creating your calibration target add the --GUI flag. The GUI doesn't have all the options which the command line has.

java -jar applications/applications.jar CreateCalibrationTarget --GUI
