    Hi - I need to do some mapping with my DJI Phantom 2 Vision+. Just basic maps of wildlife reserves from multiple images.

    I've had a go with the free pix4D app and it's really good: Mission_00002_0001 by Pix4D SA. - 3D model

    Does anyone know of any other software that works with this model of drone? The full pix4D software is really expensive! Or is there a workaround using the images taken?

    If you've got the hardware to process the images there are other aps you can get to acquire them for free but most of the time your "fees" go into the image processing.

    Thanks for the advice - I've already spent whole days trying to sort stuff on photoshop and Mapinfo :) We are a charity, so the annual cost is a bit steep even with a non-commercial discount.
