If you’re looking to create high resolution, accurate, and detailed maps with your drone, you’ve come to the right place! We’ve put together a training course showing our EXACT method that we use on every mapping drone shoot that we do. You’ll get to watch and learn as Chris takes you from A to B, teaching you his entire drone mapping process!
Not only will you get to learn how to strategically place your ground control points and plan your flight, you’ll also get to download the exact same photo dataset shot with the drone, so that you can follow along during the processing stage! What will we process with? Well, instead of just one piece of software, I’m going to show you how to use the big three! Drone Deploy, Maps Made Easy, and Pix4D will all be covered off in this drone mapping course!
You’ll have instant access to the 7 part course and download materials, and can get started mastering the art of drone mapping immediately!
In just under 2.5 hours, you’ll become a master of planning, flying and processing maps with your drone. In addition to the 7 modules below, you’ll also get to download the entire photo set that we used to process maps during the course, and lifetime access to all the training!
Module 1: Introduction & Ground Control
In module 1, I’m going to introduce you to the course, how I assess an area, and how and why and strategies for placing and using ground control points.
Module 2: Flight Planning
In module 2, we’re going to plan our flight based off the specific area the we want covered, using overlap, wind, flight direction, and other considerations to have the most efficient and productive flight.
Module 3: Autonomous Flight
In module 3, we’re going to cover off how autonomous flight happens, image collection, what the drone is doing at various points of the flight mission, and how to safely land after the mission is complete.
Module 4: Picking Up Ground Control
In module 4, we’re going to cover off how to pick up your ground control points. Yes, there is a proper way to do it to ensure that your data will be accurate!
Module 5: Drone Deploy Processing
In module 5, I’m going to teach you how to process your map, including ground control points, with Drone Deploy.
Module 6: Maps Made Easy Processing
In module 6, I’m going to teach you how to process your map, including ground control points, with Maps Made Easy.
Module 7: Pix4D Processing
In module 7, I’m going to teach you how to process your map, including ground control points and manual tie points, with Pix4D.
