Before flying always check actual circumstances at the location. If it can't do that its not really mapping! Facade scan tool The tool for vertical scanning allows to plan a vertical plane, specify the distance to the wall, as well as side and forward overlap. I would prefer if the app was independent of a processing service, I wouldn't mind paying for the app, as I will be selling the processing. . I want to make it easy for them to use. This is useful, but the drone coordinates are not in themselves sufficient because, for precise map aligning, image center coordinates are necessary.
Works fine with my S4 hotspot, didn't work with a S6. To avoid that, shorter overshot has to be set, for example 5m. Any idea if you need to use their data processing? Area can be set using visual cues on underlying map or using exact coordinates of edges. Moreover, a 3D mission planning environment gives more control allowing to view the created flight plan from all angles, taking into account any obstacles such as terrain or buildings. The recommendation is to add an explicit landing points to the route in order to avoid relying on unpredictable drone behavior or settings.
Adaptive Bank Turn should be used with caution because a drone can miss waypoints and, again, no camera triggering will be initiated. Now I must inform you that you get what you pay for, Litchi is not free. It has in-built no-fly zones and the possibility of adding your own custom no-fly zones. The optimal flying path is calculated automatically. Overlap should be chosen according to specific conditions of surveying area and requirements of data processing software.
To choose correct values, please refer to documentation of chosen software. In the example, by changing angle to 135 degrees, the number of passes is reduced from five Figure 4 to four Figure 8 and route length is 1km instead of 1. Drone crashed into the side of the mountain. I like the integration of the surface elevation! Almost none of the places I have mapped are perfectly rectangular, and I don't want to fly beyond the boundaries of their property. After matching the geotags with coordinates and correct altitudes, the images can be used for the further processing.
Please refer to your data processing software requirements as to which altitude tracking method it recommend. The most uncomplicated solution for users is online service Dronedeploy. But, in most cases, it will be more optimal to fly parallel to the longest boundary line of the survey area. Overshot can be set in photogrammetry tool to add an extra segment to both ends of each survey line. Our company identified an integrated platform recently as being a powerful solution for many of our clients.
I like the layout and is relatively easy to use. Always comply with the regulations! Step four: fly your mission For carefully planned missions, flying it is the most straightforward step. Check out Airmap for your basic needs, or for your commercial piloting business. Litchi is an impressive app. I tethered my laptop to my phone and checked 1 I could ping the cellphone and 2 I had Internet connectivity - All Good.
To better explain best practice on how to set takeoff point, first discuss an example of how it should not be done. We were pretty excited to see this update roll out to our mobile device. Best of all, from a fun perspective, this allows you to fly your drone using point and click on your computer, or even connect a game joystick to fly like a pro. Last but not least - all that for an affordable price. I could even see the camera through the app so there was some form of connectivity going on. Their mobile app is only half of the story, however. Data processing softwares like Agisoft Photoscan, Dronedeplay, Pix4d, Icarus OneButton and others will produce very accurate maps using geotagged images, but the real precision of the map will not be known without ground control points.
Not all autopilots support all 3 camera control options. Figure 16: Example of blurred image taken by drone in rotation to next waypoint -Takeoff point It is important to check the takeoff area at site before flying any mission! It is advisable not to use Bank Turn for photogrammetry missions. Because drone will not pass the waypoint, no action will be executed, meaning the camera will not be triggered, etc. One drone operator can manage up to a hundred drones from a single computer equipped with DroneShowSoftware. This new app allows you to use another mobile device as a beacon for your drone. Other drones would fly towards first waypoint straight from ground. The live video and drone position data increases the awareness of the incident enabling more efficient resolution of disaster situation or even saving lives.
