This video is a brief tutorial on the new Survey Tool in Mission Planner Ground Control software. The Survey Tool allows you to plan a mapping mission (aerial survey) based on mission requirements such as resolution and overlap/sidelap. Mission Planner automatically sets the parameter to trigger the mapping camera at intervals based on distance. The result is consistent spatial intervals between images regardless of changes in ground speed. You no longer need to guess-stimate the time interval to set in CHDK. The result is an optimal number of images for post processing.
Thank you diydrones developers! This tool is absolutely essential effective mapping.
