Camera calibration tools for Python

Project description

License Latest Version Downloads

This is a very incomplete set of tools for camera calibration.


  • OpenCV’s Python Bindings

  • moviepy

  • numpy


Print out a checkerboard and record a video of you waving it around. The calibtools-calib script can then be used to estimate camera parameters. The calibtools-undistort script will then undistort input videos based on the parameters.


The easiest way to install calibtools is via easy_install or pip:

$ pip install calibtools

If you want to check out the latest in-development version, look at the project’s GitHub page. Once checked out, installation is based on setuptools and follows the usual conventions for a Python project:

$ python install

(Although the develop command may be more useful if you intend to perform any significant modification to the library.)

Further documentation

There is more documentation available online and you can build your own copy via the Sphinx documentation system:

$ python build_sphinx

Compiled documentation may be found in build/docs/html/.
