Job not fully completed

Not sure what happened, but only about 1/3 of my images got processed? Can you please take a look.

We are sorry to hear you are not happy with your results. It looks like you used about 60-65% overlap which is less than the recommended 80+% that is recommended when heavy vegetation like that is involved. This is called out in the Data Collection guidelines that are agreed to at the time of upload:

"Use LOTS of Overlap in Treed or Crop Areas

Trees are hard to render because they are typically almost always in motion and have a lot of fine detail.

Generally, the orthophoto portion of the processing may turn out fine at 65-70% overlap. However, if there are trees included in survey area and you want the 3D components of the processing to turn out well, we recommend using 80-90% overlap in order to make sure we have enough information to represent the trees properly. Also, avoid windy days when trees are involved."

You would want your whole overlap report to be dark blue instead of like this. 

Another thing to keep an eye on is keeping the aircraft's shadow out of the field of view of the camera. This creates a hotspot that moves with the aircraft which basically changes each image. This can be mitigated by mapping at least 1.5-2 hours off of solar noon or by using a properly installed circular polarizing filter. 

We will grant a one-time 50% refund for overlap and hotspot related issues.

Your other more recent map is awesome! It too is a little light on the overlap but it worked out.

Mind if we share it? If so, what is the name of the farm?
