Newbie here from North Dakota. Graduate from University of North Dakota in Unmanned Aircraft Systems. Looking to learn more about different mapping software. Found ODM to use for personal use. Currently have a Phantom 4 Pro, Mavic Air 2, and various racing drones. I’ll be sure to post my questions because I’m sure I’ll have some!
Glad to see other FPV enthusiasts out here.
Any videos or good threads to look into on doing my first 2D map?
hey @KeanerFPV a good approach is to just try and fail a bit The ODM blog is full of goodness:
https://www.opendronemap.org/blog/ - browse through there for posts on flight planning, good settings, all kinds of things.
This is a good one to start out. At about 5:48 he clicks the “Select Images” button really quickly and it’s easy to miss, but overall his explanations are quite good. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Q3YO8PcYQI
We really ought to add a “processing your first map” tutorial in the docs. I’m adding a note to add that.
Also this is one, which includes finding and downloading a sample dataset.
