    I2 GSP PhotoMap won't complete compositing - GSP crashes

    Completed a GSP flight set up in PhotoMap and captured 159 photos. I tried to create a map, choosing each of the three options; All (159 pix) and High (85) returned a red pix#, Mid (47) yellow and and Low (34) green. In each case including the Low option, the map processing gets to about 50%...

    Hello, I am doing some research regarding thermomapping. I was wondering if anyone had any experience making thermomaps. If so, what drone/sensor combination are you using? what software have you used to stitch images? what altitudes have you flown at? thanks!

    Mapping and Volumes by drone

    I am currently using Drone Deploy to do volume calculations and I have looked into Pix4d, Site scan by 3dr, and Propeller Aero. I was curious if anyone knows of other services either cloud based or desktop based that they like. Drone Deploy seems to be hit or miss for volumes. I have had to go...

    Mapping Accuracy with IP

    Hi Everyone, I have an Inspire Pro and have some drone mapping questions, if you wouldn't mind answering. 1) If I were to map out an area with my IP, what would the accuracy be within (without GC or RTK)? 2) Would flying lower or higher improve measurement accuracy? 3) Would different focal...

    Inspections, mapping - 9mm or 13mm lens?

    Hi guys, Im going to buy XT 640 Radiometric 30 HZ. The main purpose will be inspections for PV panels, powerlines etc. (can´t wait to try it with the new M200 btw). Normally I would probably go with 13 mm lens as kind of "do it all". But as I learned that mapping is sort of tricky with XT due...

    DJI XT Thermal Mapping programs

    I am currently having issues using pix4d with my DJI XT 336x256. Does anyone have tips on what image properties need to be changed for this to work? It only seems to recognize the XT high res camera. Also, if anyone has any suggestions about other stitching software. Drone deploy is still in...

    Large mapping job with Inspire?

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone has done fairly large mapping with Inspire? I got an offer to do 1200 ha for barn beetle monitoring... Currently I only have Inspire 1 Pro. For mapping I mostly use Oly 12mm with MapPilot and MapsMadeEasy processing. And for smaller jobs it has been very reliable...

    DJI XT camera and mapping apps

    I am using the DJI XT infrared camera 640x512. Has anyone used this camera with pix4d, maps made easy, or drone deploy? Was wondering about signal strength, range, ect. From what I have found is that pix4d is the best, although not the easiest to use. It is also only compatible with the high...

    Pix4d Range Issues

    I am new to Pix4d. Just wondering if anyone has experienced any fly aways or any strange errors occurring while using pix4d and an inspire. I was told that the transmitter range is much much shorter than a standard flight with an inspire. Any intel would be greatly appreciated!
