Planning a data-capture flight can be a tricky process. Our flight planning software tool DJIFlightPlanner takes the challenge out of area-based mission planning. This low-cost, easy to use software (US$99 for a single-PC perpetual license) has been designed specifically for low-altitude UAV flights and supports DJI hardware such as the Phantom 3 / 4, Inspire 1 / 2, Mavic 1/2 Air/Pro/Zoom, Spark and Matrice 100/200/210/600.
DJIFlightPlanner will allow you to adjust critical imaging parameters: camera sensor, flying height, ground speed, forward overlap, side overlap, ground pixel size & imaging frame rate. This puts you in complete control over your photogrammetric aerial survey mission & guarantees full coverage over the area of interest.
We originally designed this software for us to use ourselves, because we simply COULD NOT FIND a satisfactory way to pre-plan and fly an area-based mission with our off-the-shelf DJI Phantom. Our export file format can be imported directly into Litchi (for Android & Apple iOS) for flying. So then with a single-button press, you can make your drone take off, fly the mission, and safely land again after having automatically captured all the required images.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
Your DJI drone
A 64-bit Windows-based PC for flight planning (with DJIFlightPlanner installed)
An Android-based tablet or phone for flying (with Litchi installed)
An Apple iOS-based tablet or phone for flying (with Litchi installed)
NEW! For post-flight image analysis we recommend DJIAfterFlight. For only $29 for a license, this great little tool allows you to review image metadata while still on-site. Everything is shown on a map-based screen and has search capabilities, as well as thumbnail previews and a customizable export tool. This unique way of looking at image metadata has been designed specifically with UAV imagery in mind, and it also exposes the hidden metadata that DJI drones usually record - most EXIF software won't read these tags !
NEW! Unlock the true potential of your DJI drone today by performing photogrammetric aerial survey missions. Generate millions of 3D points from 2D images. Produce photo-realistic ortho-mosaics from as few as half-a-dozen images. Whether you are from a small company, university, government sector, mining, defence, engineering, or large multinational, DJIFlightPlanner (for flight planning) and Photometrix iWitnessPRO-V4 (for image processing) are a powerful and affordable combination.
