Main CLI

cars is the unique entry point for CARS command line interface (CLI) to run 3D pipelines.

It enables two main pipelines : prepare and compute_dsm described in the following sections.

usage: cars [options] <command> [<args>]

The cars commands are:
    prepare             Preparation for compute_dsm producing stereo-
                        rectification grid as well as an estimate of the
                        disparity to explore.
    compute_dsm         Tile-based, concurent resampling in epipolar geometry,
                        disparity estimation, triangulation and rasterization

The options are :
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  --version, -v         show program's version number and exit

Arguments on a file

Sometimes, for example when dealing with a particularly long argument lists, it may make sense to keep the list of arguments in a file rather than typing it out at the command line. With CARS, the @ character can be used to define a file containing arguments to be used.

cars @args.txt

Example of arguments list in @args.txt file:

prepare  -i data_samples/input12.json -o  data_samples/outprepare12 --nb_workers 2 --loglevel INFO

Examples files and data can be found in demo directory in source code.
