UAS for Remote Sensing - Image Acquisition

We generally fly at an altitude of 700 ft above ground, which results in a nominal ground resolved distance of 6 cm for the Canon imagery and 13 cm for the multispectral imagery. We acquire images with a forward lap of 75% and sidelap of 40% for photogrammetric processing into seamless image mosaics. The onboard computer records a timestamp, GPS location, elevation, pitch, roll, and heading for each image.
