Creating Your Own

BoofCV provides an application for generating your own custom calibration target. You can size the pattern for your specific application on any sized paper. First you need to build the applications, see below:

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

The last line above will run the application with no arguments. This will print out help, including examples each target type on letter sized paper.

  • Shape for chessboard includes black and white squares
  • Shape for square grid is only the black squares
  • Square Grid patterns above have a 1 to 1 ratio between black squares and space between.


WHEN PRINTING THE CALIBRATION GRID MAKE SURE YOUR PRINTER DOES NOT RESCALE THE DOCUMENTS!
Failure to do so will cause intrinsic parameters to be off by a scale-factor. Measure with a ruler to make sure each square is 30mm wide
