Or tell me it’s already out there.
I want to take a digital photo of a bunch of rocks laid out on the ground & have a program sort them into the best fit & give me a numbered print out of which one goes where.
Similar to a cabinet cut program that lays out cab parts on ply to get the best fit/least waste.
Go for it Oh Computer Wizards, let me know when it’s ready for testing.

I'm sure that there are folks out there who have most of that program written -- it's a fairly simple pattern recognition and bin packing problem. The trick is finding someone who has the pieces and is interested in such a rather mundane application.
Around here that kind of program is not hard to find, though the legal status can be questionable. English must be optional. lol?. Jim
