Orthomosaic maps can be created stitching together hundreds of images captured from a drone flying at low altitude. Our drones are programmed to fly a predetermined pattern over a specified area and capture images every two seconds. Each image file contains information identifying precise "real world" location for referencing on Google Earth maps.
NOTE: Map tools are optimized for keyboard/mouse interfaces. Touchscreens, such as phones and tablets, may be unreliable.
Toolbar for maps is on the bottom of each map and will auto-hide when mouse is away from the view. To make it appear, place the mouse pointer over any portion of the map.
To zoom in and out, use the mouse wheel or the + and - buttons on the toolbar.
To pan the map, click and drag or use the four arrows buttons on the toolbar.
To reset the map view, use the Home button on the toolbar.
The four arrow button will make the map full screen. Click the button again or press the esc key.
The measurement button will allow you to click points on the map to measure distances or area.
The ? button will bring up a help menu, going into further detail of how to use the maps.
Each map has a minimap in the top left corner. Click on this map to focus the larger map on that location.
The minimap also has a ruler to assist in general distance measurements.
