A mapping exercise (resolution 2.3cm/px) completed purely to assist in locating a model aircraft lost in an adjacent field to the Nene Valley Aeromodellers flying site. Can you see it - a red Hawker Hunter!? Also click to see this 360° panorama of the same area.
Base Maps: "Satellite" or "Streets"
User Maps: "Standard" Map or "Elev" (a colourised Digital Elevation Model (DEM) Map, the elevation numbers at the bottom of which help identify how high any point in the map is & extremely useful for farmers in identifying drainages and slopes)
Once the the images are processed into a Georeferenced map by Maps Made Easy it will be available on their web map viewer, (similar to Google Earth) via the provided link. The following will also be available if required:
See www.gearthblog.com/blog/archives/2005/09/google_earth_fi.html for detailed information about KML/KMZ files
Drone Deploy can also be used for map processing in a similar way to the above. This example trial map taken at Tyringham Hall was filmed as a 2D, & not 3D map although low definition 3D viewing of this map is an option. Click HERE or image to view map online:-
The item below was a trial 3D mapping excercise using one of the Tryingham "Temples" as a subject.. To view either click HERE or in the image, then select the Drone Deploy "3D Model" option to view:-
Various maps can be combined into layers which can be selected either visible or hidden. In this example, the above layer of resolution 1.6cm (0.65") per pixel has been superimposed on top of 3 adjacent layers of resolution 3.0cm (1.2") per pixel. One use of this facility would be to monitor crop growth by conducting regular mapping flights over the same area and superimposing the layers as here. Note: The Volumetric measuring tool is not available with the Location map.
Preferred Partners Required:-
In order to extend our skills & experience in this new area & particularly 3D modelling of sites & buildings, we are currently looking for interesting sites to map at a discounted rate to those shown below. If you are interested in this mutually beneficial arrangement then please contact us to discuss.
An accurate quotation will be provided once we have all the relevant information from the Client, the following however gives an indication of the likely charges :
Number of Images: Size of area to be mapped, map resolution & image overlap
Volumetric measurement tool
Note: VAT is not payable
We are now gearing up to provide an EXIF Tag-based & Basemap-based Georeferencing Mapping Service using our DJI Inspire 2, Phantom 4 Pro and two DJI Phantom 3 Pro aircraft. This will include optional Stockpile Volume Measurement, Textured 3D Modelling and eventually once a suitable camera is released for the Inspire 2, Phantom 4 Pro & 3 Pro, Normalised Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) mapping.
Below are some 2D test maps taken with a Phantom 3 Pro & 4 Pro drones, of part of the Nene Valley Aeromodellers flying site near Olney, Bucks. They were produced from 29 & 44 images of 4000 x 3000 px resolution taken from a height of 40M above ground level which resulted in a map resolution of
1.6cm (0.65") per pixel.
