Can one use drone2map to create point clouds using images without any geospatial information? For example one can use Metashape to create models of a statue or fire hydrant with pictures from any old DSLR.

Probably not without any spatial data. It will just stack images on top of each other as a 0,0 coordinate. But a DSLR should have spatial data associated with it.  However, I have had some issues with Drone2Map not always recognizing the spatial data.

Thanks Colleen. Actually I don't want the spatial data at all. I'm trying to see if I can run D2M more like Metashape where it creates models based on tie points rather than relying on real-world coordinate data.
