Today, we offer some advice on making high-quality maps and models. If you’re starting to make 3D models with your drone, you’ll find this episode helpful.
Obviously, we want our models to be high-quality. We want them to have high resolution. However, topographic changes in the landscape often shift the resolution of the image. As your elevation changes, the quality of your image will change as well.
Luckily, there are tools designed to help with this. Apps like Maps Made Easy are designed to deal with changing elevations. Drone settings such as Terrain Awareness, as well. If you need help making better 3D models, this episode is for you!
Thanks to Mark in upstate NY for the question! Fly safe!
