Accessing Log Files

Tudor -

NOTE: This only applies to versions released before Map Pilot 2.0.0. Log Files are not accessed through the Log File Manager.

All flights done under the control of Map Pilot will create a CSV log file that allows the user to track previous flights and use the output for further analysis.

These files can be accessed by connecting your iOS device to your computer and opening iTunes. 

  1. Click on the device's icon at the top of iTunes where you select the media being used. "iPhone" is labeled in the sample image.                                                     
  2. Select "Apps" from the menu on the right.                                                             
  3. Scroll down to the bottom of the screen to the "File Sharing" section and select "Map Pilot".                       
  4. Select the file or files that you would like to download from the device and click the "Save To..." button.                     

These files can be analyzed and converted to a KML using our Log File Viewer or a number of other third party services such as Airdata UAV (formerly Healthy Drones) or DroneLogBook.

    When I get to file sharing and click on ME it only shows 6 .csv files, but 7 missions are saved in the app. Any suggestions?

    The log files are only taken for flights that you have actually flown. Saved missions in the app are just for saved flight PLANS. There is no correlation between the two.

    One flight log per flight. The flights.plist file is the one that holds your cached mission data and it isn't really something meant to be read by other software.
