I’m about to start on a fairly large mapping project documenting a massive field looking for an invasive species of plant. I’ve identified that the lowest I can get away flying is 90ft while still being able to identify the species.
Because the area is so large and I’m looking at roughly 800+ min of flight time and possibly tens of thousands of images, does it make more sense to break up the space into multiple smaller maps or fly the entire field using one map?
I’ve been flying for many years but new to the mapping process so any insight is greatly appreciated.
I’m also going to be need to overlay these maps in something like google earth or similar. Not sure if that changes how I approach the project?
Thanks so much!
