IMPORT KML/SHP FILES IN-APP PURCHASE
Increase your construction mapping efficiency by importing KML/SHP files into GS Pro. KML/SHP files, which contain important geographic information, can be imported into GS Pro via a PC or Mac wirelessly, or directly from within an iPad. After the geometries have been successfully imported, users can swipe left on the geometry list in the Map Panel, and GS Pro will automatically generate a flight mission according to the geometry field, helping users to conduct mapping with accuracy and ease.Mapping with GS Pro becomes even more flexible by adjusting waypoints. If GS Pro fails to generate a geometry similar to the target building or sets a flight route that’s not able to deliver a good result, users can still manually adjust the waypoints by dragging or add new ones to meet their needs.
IMPORT KML/SHP FILES
To import KML/SHP files via a PC or Mac, open GS Pro, choose “File”, click “Start import”, and a prompt containing an IP address will show up. Enter the address into any browser installed on the PC or Mac, and choose “Upload Files” on the webpage. Users will find the file in GS Pro under the “File” folder when it’s been successfully uploaded. Users can also do this with an iPad by downloading KML/SHP files via Safari or email and following the instructions to import the files into GS Pro. If the files users import are in KMZ or ZIP format, GS Pro will decompress them automatically into GS Pro’s “File” folder.
IMPORTING GEOMETRIES OF A TARGET BUILDING
Swipe the KML/SHP file you want to the left, and tap “Import”. GS Pro will automatically process the file and generate geometries in the “Map” folder.
CREATING A FLIGHT MISSION
Swipe a task in “Map” folder to the left and tap “Create Mission”. Choose a mission type and a flight mission will be created automatically.
1. GS Pro supports KML, SHP, KMZ, and ZIP formats and automatically decompresses KMZ and ZIP files when importing from an iPad.
2. GS Pro can generate polygons, line strings, and points. Points cannot be used to create a flight mission, yet can be used as a reference for GCP (Ground Control Point) setup.3. Currently, WGS-84 is the only coordinate system supported by GS Pro.
DJI GS PRO
MISSION-CRITICAL FLIGHT SIMPLIFIED GS Pro (also known as Ground Station Pro) is an iPad app designed to control or plan automatic flights for DJI aircraft. Through its clear, concise interface, complex flight missions can be planned with a few taps. GS Pro will then automatically take pictures at pre-set waypoints, providing the accuracy required for precision mapping. A Virtual Fence feature increases safety and ease of use by locking the aircraft’s height and speed within a designated area. With these features, GS Pro dramatically increases the efficiency of various industrial applications, including but not limited to, aerial imaging, architecture, precision agriculture, electrical inspections, search and rescue, safety control, and more.
3D MAP POI IN-APP PURCHASE
Generate detailed maps of tall structures using 3D Map POI. Simply choose the subject and set a distance between it and the aircraft. GS Pro will then provide relevant parameters including speed and time required to circuit the structure. Images captured can be exported into 3D reconstruction software to create accurate 3D models of the entire building.
3D Map POI
3D Map POI excels in gathering the critical data of a structure, and is especially useful for measuring tall skyscrapers and towers. Just tap the structure on the screen and enter its basic parameters, then GS Pro will direct the drone and camera to gather the precise data you need. Through a number of customizable features like Circle and Vertical mode, 3D Map POI provides complete accuracy for effective structural management.
After setting the drone's altitude range and flight radius, photo overlap ratio, and the structure’s radius, GS Pro will prompt the aircraft to fly in a circular path around the structure at different altitudes from top to bottom, using its photos to generate a composite 3D image according to the user’s settings.
After setting the drone's altitude range and flight radius, photo overlap ratio, and the structure’s radius, GS Pro will prompt the aircraft to follow a vertical flight and shot path along the structure, automatically relocating to the next path until it can generate a composite 3D image according to the user’s settings.
Vertical mode operates in three shooting modes:In Hover-and-Capture mode, the aircraft will calculate an increased number of waypoints that create vertical paths, and hover at each one, capturing images at maximum shot stability.In Capture at Equal Distance Interval / Time Interval mode, the aircraft will continuously fly along the main path, shooting at equal distance or time intervals while moving along vertical paths for faster operation.
In Circle and Vertical mode, the aircraft will fly in a straight path between waypoints, so the actual distance between the aircraft and the structure may sometimes be shorter than the preset flight radius. During Capture at Equal Distance/Time Interval mode, the aircraft will fly along a parabola and the distance to the shooting target may be longer than the preset radius, so please make sure the surrounding area is open and large enough to avoid collision risks. To ensure flight safety, operators on the ground should move along with the aircraft to maintain line of sight as the aircraft flies around the structure.
In Vertical mode, the aircraft will fly up and down many times at a relatively low speed (1~4 m/s, although speed varies from different aircraft modes), which will lead to a longer shooting time and faster consumption of the battery level.
When resuming operations in Circle or Vertical mode, the aircraft will first ascend directly to a height equal to the previous waypoint, then fly towards it. To avoid collision risks, be sure there are no ceilings or buildings above the aircraft.
PHOTOMAP IN-APP PURCHASE
The newly-added Photomap function helps users efficiently create aerial photograph-based maps. After users complete an aerial photography mission in the desired area and import the photos into GS Pro, the software will automatically create a composite photo of the area that users can adjust as needed.
Virtual fence defines a specific area of flight and is useful in scenarios where some areas of asite are no-fly zones or if flight should only happen within one area, such as during manual pesticide spraying or flight. It is also useful in pilot training situations. As the aircraft approaches the virtual fence, it will brake and hover to ensure it stays within the flight area.
DJI GS Pro is a powerful, convenient and easy to use tool. With just a few taps on an iPad, complex flight routes can be created, giving critical missions added accuracy and reliability. GS Pro is an indispensable tool that is capable of dramatically increasing efficiency in a wide range of industries.
