Coal Stockpile Survey - Camera Settings

Hi all,

Each month I have to fly a series of large coal stockpiles for monthly volume reports. Until now, I have been getting very noisy/bumpy data from my flights. I believe this is due to the low contrast nature of photographing all-black stockpiles. 

What camera settings would be recommended/suggested to improve or increase the contrast of the images? Currently I will fly a nadir mission, and all take several oblique photographs to compliment.

Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated.



Hi Mitchell,

Can you send us some examples of your images for the reference so we could assist you better? :wink:

Thanks in advance!
