Planning a flight with GCP's

Would love to be able to mark proposed areas for GCP’s with the annotation or another tool so I could see them in flight and on my map to make sure I have enough coverage for each point.


General rule is 75% overlaps and you want at least two flight lines across each gcp. Three is obviously better. That would be 7-9 images per point vs. 11-13.

Yea, I just mean like before I got out to a site I’d like to be able to mark the approximate location I need to shoot for the GCP. I do that in Google Earth now but would be easier to have all in one place.


I think I get you now. You want to see the annotations as you are flight planning?

Have you tried converting GCP’s coordinates to Lat Long and exporting as kml file and then upload to
DD. ? I assume you have accurate GCP’s (surveyed).


Note that this will only work if your coordinates are grid and not surface.
