Research of UAV Flight Planning Parameters


UAV remote sensing as a digital aerial photography, not only has some basic photogrammetry features, but also has some other features. In this paper, aim at the characteristics of UAV remote sensing, begin with image data acquisition, the various parameter setting in the route planning were introduced, some of the principle was analyzed, the design of control points was described, and some of the considerations when laid control points were summarized.
