Hoping for some help as i assess drone deploy for company use.
i have yet to complete a perfect 3D model but i am close and think i will get there but bumped into this erro whiel trying to model a liight house, noted for its long tower and very low to the ground building structure.
I attempted the following
- selected a “Structure” option , and set flight altitude to 40m
- using beta feature of Flight mode i set it to :structures"
- using beta feature of “Overlap Optimizer” i set altitude of highest structure to 30m where the building structure is at 8m high and the tower is at 30m
- i flew at altitude of 40m
Questions follow the error response from Drone Deploy after processing
Your DroneDeploy Flight: “macquarie lighthouse” at 7 Old South Head Rd, Vaucluse NSW 2030, Australia Failed to Process
Unfortunately, we could not process your data into a map. We automatically detected the following issues:
1. The flight altitude was lower than 30m (~100ft)
The average altitude for images on this map was 30 meters AGL. While flying low does increase resolution, it can reduce the number of significant objects in each image, making the process of stitching them together into a map more problematic. Flying lower also reduces overlap on the tops of buildings, trees and stockpiles. For more reliable map processing, we recommend flying at least 100ft (30m) above your subject material.
2. “Structures” Map Type was selected.
The Structures Map Type can help produce better 3D models, but sometimes fails when the Terrain Map Type would have succeeded. You could try processing again with the Map Type set to “Terrain”.
the flight plan remains in “processing” mode some 18 hours after this message and does not allow me to enter the flight plan. How would i reset this?
Making a copy of the flight plan does not seem to provide the option to reprocess the pictures with the “Terrain” setting
Looking at the copy, it does not seem to provide an upload option to re-upload pictures without flying the plan again. is this correct?
why am i getting this message when it seems my flight was ok, should i have flown at a higher altitude than the 10m above the tower point. Is it correct that i used AUTOPILOT to do an orbital flight at 15m to capture the lower part of the structure? i s this set of pictures causing some confusion
As i am assessing the free version Drone Deploy app for broader use in my company i dont seem to see a method to contact drone deploy if manual intervention is needed to reset or reprocess anything?
Thanks in advance for your help
