Tips
  • Set GCP (otherwise, use a PPK enabled UAV and a GPS base station)
  • (3) We must have 80% overlap on the canopy. Ex : For a flight height at 120 m AGL, and the trees’s height is equal to 30m, then the Forward/Side overlap must be set at 83%/83%
  • Add additionnal UAV trajectories outside the Area of Interest
  • For projects with multiple flights there should be overlap between the different flights and the conditions ( sun direction, weathers, etc..)
  • Set GCP
  • Avoid to fly during azimut sun period or when the sun is low (shadows)
  • Avoid to fly when the weather is alternating between sunny and cloudy
  • Take pictures of the calibration panel BEFORE and AFTER the flight (multispectral).
