Hi, we are using multicopters to drop mangrove seeds and would really like autonomous route planning taking elevation data from high resolution orthomosaics into account.
As an example, right now we map the area and then use the Ortho to manually create seeding routes that keep the drone over the elevation band that gives the highest growth success rates, i.e avoiding channels and/or keeping the route in the intertidal zone.
It would be awesome if we could input the ground elevation that the route should cover and then the software automatically populates the route to avoid the channels and stay within the intertidal zone elevation. It wouldn’t have to be perfectly accurate, just pretty close. The drone does not have to stay at a set height though, just avoid the areas mentioned above.
Thanks in advance,
