Hi SolarBarn and chascoadmin
I appreciate your comments in this post, but I would like to go back to my initial question: Can I split my maps into smaller pieces / fields.
Thank you, Gary, for your suggestion, but this is not really what I was aiming at.
Let me explain my goal a bit further:
The sugar cane fields I am going to monitor in your upcoming research project are mainly small in size – as little as 2 acres (extreme case) but also, our plan is to create testing fields where we plant different types of sugar cane and monitor the performance in relation to fertilizing, water management, pest control and environmental aspects.
It would be unpractical to fly each of the fields separate and upload them as individual fields.
I would like to:
- capture a larger area to minimize capture time, and
- organize the captured area in individual fields.
This is possible using Sentera Fieldagent Watch video
Using DroneDeploy it seems I have to separate the images into individual field first or I have to upload the whole set of images multiple times and then crop each set to the individual field boundaries.
Both solutions would be time consuming / resulting in a high amount of upload data.
T overcome this problem I tried:
1. Load a set of images, define the field area smaller than the whole image set – hoping DroneDeploy would only upload the images necessary to create a map form the smaller part. Didn’t work
- I uploaded a set of images and after the map has been created I used the copy function of a map, hoping this would copy the map so I can then create individual fields out of each copied map. Didn’t work either, the copy function only created a new flight plan based on the map.
I am sure, I am not the first user trying to capture a large area and split it in smaller section.
Is there a function for a workflow like this?
