There are a lot of variables when it comes to mapping. Altitude, camera, focal length, resolution, urgency, area covered, overlap, terrain, types of objects being mapped and so on... The list gets pretty long. There is no single approach that will work for everything, so we have designed a point-based system to address varying complexity, accuracy, urgency, and use cases. The bigger and more detailed the map, the more points it will require. The more points you buy, the cheaper they are. It's that simple.
Required Points = Total Gigapixels * 200
Total Gigapixels = Image Height * Image Width * Number of Images / 1,000,000
|Price||Points||Approximate Coverage*||Cost per Acre|
|$29.99||1,500||650 Acres||$0.046||$54.99||3,000||1,350 Acres||$0.041|
* Assumes 60% overlap, 2 inch/px GSD and a 4000 x 3000 DJI Camera.
Our Map Pilot for DJI app for iOS devices is the most accurate and easiest way to make estimates.
