Incomplete Map. Only half of the images got included and there is a hard edge where half of the map failed.

Incomplete Map. Only half of the images got included and there is a hard edge where half of the map failed.

I flew a Map Pilot mission on a DJI Mavic 2 Pro with 75% overlap with part of the mapped area containing tall trees. I assume the trees are the reason for the failure, though it seems odd that there is such a discrete line of failure in the middle of the map.
Would submitting these same images again in a new map produce a different (better) result or is this the best I can do with the current image set?

Thanks for all the help and creating such a great set of software products!

Whenever trees are involved we recommend using at least 80% overlap. This is noted in the Data Collection guidelines that are agreed to at the time of upload. Water is another issue here and is the #1 thing to avoid as noted in the Data Collection guidelines.

Your overlap report looks more like 60-65% overlap was used. 75% overlap would have resulted in a fully dark blue overlap report. Please send us the Map Pilot flight log if this is not the case.

Zane, thank you for the prompt reply and feedback. I definitely see that I should have used a higher overlap.
The mission was created with a 75% overlap. I have the kml, csv and mme files here. What is the best way to send them to you?
