Hello, I’m using a plane equipped with a camera and a micro-usb shutter to take photos. I’m using Mission Planner with the Do Set Cam Trigg Dist option.
The camera has a built in GPS but is not very accurate. I want to get more accuracy. I’ve read the tutorial on using the Geo Ref Images app in Mission Planner, but I have a few problems and questions.
To use the Cam message method do I have to use the .tlog or the dataflash log? Or both.
In case I want to use the Time Offset method, when I load the .tlog and the photos and click Estimate, usually the offset is very high. Like -4324 segs in a dataset and -13,254 in another. Is this normal?
I took the -4324 segs offset and copied it to the seconds offset and when I hit preprocess and then geotag images I try to visualize them in Google Earth to compare it to the built in GPS photos and the new ones look inverted and out of place.
- To set the same time to the Camera and to the GPS of the autopilot? Where do I set it up? Is it the time of the computer (my computer has a problem and the time resets) or do I have to set it on the mission planner, in that case I don’t know where.
Thanks in advance.
