    Just finished processing our first mission in the Philippines - over layed on ground survey excellent results - have published a fly through on you tube or search pt Irene 2 - around 20 missions and over 4400 images all with phantoms

    Interesting us we also were able to get some elevations on the rocks and sand below the water level.

    Still working out the best way to export and viewing the files for the client -

    Amazing, thanks for sharing!

    Curious, beyond the imaging acquisition, what was the post processing hours required to render?

    yes many hours to process and still experimenting with outputs so our clients can view. Best we have found is quick terrain reader. Better viewing than in civil 3d.

    Next project is in very steep terrain -a new mining area to map around 3 sq km. Will be a challenge as fixed wing too hard to find area to take off and land. We will use a fleet of 3 phantoms and a couple of parties setting up gcp's
