One of the best new features in Maps Made Easy is the ability to make Flat Maps. Flat Maps are a non-photogrammetric 2D map that is created using the aircraft's location, the pointing angle of the gimbal and the surrounding terrain model. Map Pilot Pro allows users to collect low overlap data (5-15%) that can than be reviewed and adjusted in the Quick Maps screen. Once adjustments have been made the data can be uploaded to Maps Made Easy for processing into a Flat Map in just a few minutes.
This feature is especially useful for linear missions and thermal missions as well as agricultural or forest mapping that is problematic using standard photogrammetry.
