How to plan the drone mission?

  • Updated

Once you've downloaded the kml file containing the field boundaries, you can start planning the actual drone mission.

The drone mission should be planned in such a way that:

  • the flight path is aligned to fly along the longest axis of the field
  • 2 additional flight lines are being acquired outside the boundary area, to ensure enough sideward overlap within the ROI
  • all flight lines are being extended beyond the boundary area with 2 additional image acquisition points to ensure enough forward overlap within the ROI
  • there is an 80/80% front/side overlap


Flight lines - aligned along longest axis of the field



Flight line margins            OK                                                                         NOK
