Although I have previous and successful mapping experience with DJI Phantom 3 Pro and DroneDeploy app, this time I would like to employ a Mavic 2 Pro. The idea is to shot a sequence of RAW images for further processing and stitching to obtain truly high resolution, wall size landscape image. More art piece than a map. Am I on the right path? Would DD deliver RAW files at all?
Hi Matt! DroneDeploy does not shoot in RAW. Are you trying to make a wall-size print/wrap of an orthomosaic map or just an aerial scene in general? If you can shoot in RAW Microsoft ICE stitches nicely in various formats.
Michael, thank you for response. No, orthomosaic map is not my goal, just the plain view straight down, stitched with - say - 30 images. These must be shot RAW with 45mm lens at 5 sec intervals while Inspire 2 will move follow lawnmower pattern slow enough to avoid blur. I guess I’m asking for too much …
What you are describing is how you make an orthomosaic map. I just wanted to make sure we were still talking about mapping and you weren’t wanting a vertical panorama or standard oblique image.
and later on you say
Which is it?
Either way, you should note that a 45mm lense is quite a bit higher zoom than what most drones used for mapping have. This means that the FOV is decreased and it will take either more altitude or a slower flight speed to capture typical values, but…
Is really slow… A more standard interval is 2-3 seconds at 10-15mph.
