I'm interested in this platform, but wondering if i'll be able to process the imagery through MME. (Both for DEMs and NDVI- not at once)
Is this possible?

Maps Made Easy can process images taken on any camera. It helps when that camera geotags the images so the outputs will be georeferenced. As long as the camera is of reasonable quality it should work out fine.

Thanks Zane, this product uses the sequoia ,multi-spectral camera. I understood there were some issues with MME processing those images (at least the multi-spectral ones) I've been able to find very little information on the use of the RGB images for mapping purposes.

Maps Made Easy only accepts JPG images so you can't process the discrete band's TIF images. The RGB images will work as long as there is a lot of overlap and the camera is reasonably stabilized. The rolling shutter on that camera is REALLY slow and that introduces lots of distortion due to aircraft vibration for hard mounted cameras. That is why we offer our Agronaut system.

Thanks Zane, that makes more sense now, looks like it's back to the drawing board, for an "off the shelf" fixed wing solution. I've had parts for one sitting in my shed for over a year now! (sans camera)
