I'm new to aerial mapping and also new to DroneDeploy together with a DJI Inspire-2 with X5S Camera and the standard (15mm) lens. So far I have had only two experiences, one good and the second not so good:
For my first test, I used the DJI Ground Station Pro app to collect the data. The subject was a small, flat, playing field. I uploaded the 50+ images and was rewarded with a good map. All good!
For my second test, I used the DroneDeploy app over a larger (4.3 hectare) crop field. The flight lasted about 5 min and collected 89 images. However the map was incomplete (only about 20% stitched). I tried up-loading the data-set a second time but with a similar (but different) result. The map is again only about 20% complete. I have read the tutorials on the subject and it occurs to me that it might be due to the fact that the field is covered in good quality crop. The other factor that has occurred to me is that while using the DJI GSPro app, the aircraft hovers to take each photo, DroneDeply does so on the fly - which is much faster, but could this be a factor? The altitude in both cases was about 50m and the overlap was adequate (more than 60%).
Any suggestions much appreciated!
