3d map is nice quality, out of curiosity is this a pix4D, autodesk momento, or some other photogrammetry software?


I was in a very stiff wind of about 15-20 mph flying @ 200 FT AGL, I had the Inspire 1 Pro X5 15MM stock DJI Lens ready to fly in these winds of Nebraska.

The properties that I posted I did 240 photos with a crosshatch pattern. I did the first flight north and south and the second east and west over the property so that I would get some good coverage for High res photo which I feel I accomplished.

The only things I should of completed was I needed to do some oblique photos and lower my AGL a bit and shoot at a 45 degree angle  so when zooming in on the 3D the objects would of been better filled in on the model.     

I used MapsMadeEasy for the flight and uploaded to Drone Deploy for rendering,

Nice yeah, those oblique shots will help the programs to determine better points on the corners of the objects (silos and such). Ortho came out very nice and as a first pass the 3d model is fine, the extra detail would come from the obliques, and even then i have found it is best to do some retopology touch up in a 3d modeling software such as Blender (Maya, etc). Keep it up would love to see more.
