Hi Ardupilot community,
I’m in the beginning stages of a fairly ambitious project to replace very expensive manned aircraft with a VTOL drone using a custom 5 Camera rig to survey large areas for humanitarian purposes.
The goal is to use the drone to capture a combination of Oblique (North, East, South, West) and Nadir images during a single pass to maximize the operational efficiency of the drone.
We’ve done testing and found that drones that geo-tag the images (Such as the Phantom 4 or Mavic 2) generally do a great job after we process the images & metadata with Something like PIX4D.
I’m hoping I can replicate that process, but the sensor I’ve chosen doesn’t geo-tag the images with either the Lat/Long or camera orientation. I’ve seen several guides on how to geo-tag images from a single camera. (Generally facing strait down) but I’m unaware of a way that I can easily tag all of the images consistently.
I hope this topic found the right forum, if not, any direction to a good source of information would certainly be appreciated.
EDIT: I wanted to add that the Oblique images are captured at a 45 degree angle.
