Best settings for residential properties and how to avoid wavy lines?


#1

Hello, everyone. I’m just getting in to aerial mapping to be able to offer it to clients, alongside aerial photography/videography. I’m currently using a DJI Mavic Air drone. I know this is not the ideal drone for mapping. However, I’ve been able to get great results using the Drone Deploy app for flights and processing maps.

I’d like to be able to use WebODM in the future, but I’ve been getting the wavy buildings using default settings in WebODM. I’ve done some research and have seen others reporting this. There are obviously lots of settings that can be changed in WebODM. Are there good default settings to use for the Mavic Air or for maps in general of residential properties (with a house, trees, etc)? Should I be doing a camera calibration? I use plenty of overlap when planning flights in the Drone Deploy app.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
