Tutorials

If you are using TopoFlight for the first time or in search of guidance we have some tutorials to give you support with our software:

TopoFlight Mission Planner

Tutorials

Tutorial #1 – #4 - Creating a TopoFlight Project

Tutorial video explaining the creation of a whole TopoFlight Project including:
- integration of an orthophoto generated in Google Maps
- integration of a SRTM Digital Height Model
- creation of an area of interest and integration into TopoFlight
- creation of the first flight plan with TopoFlight Mission Planner


Tutorial #1 - Generating background orthophoto with Google Maps

Tutorial video explaining the integration of an orthophoto from Google Maps into TopoFlight Mission Planner as background layer


Tutorial #2 - Import of a SRTM Digital Terrain Model

Tutorial video explaining the integration of a SRTM Digital Height Model into TopoFlight Mission Planner as source of topographic information


Tutorial #3 - Creating the area of interest with GoogleEarth

Tutorial video explaining the creation of an area of interest and integration into TopoFlight Mission Planner


Tutorial #4 - Creating the first flight plan with TopoFlight Mission Planner

Tutorial video explaining the creation of the first flight plan with TopoFlight Mission Planner


Tutorial #5 - Setting correct scanning parameters
Tutorial video explaining the setting of correct scanning parameters in TopoFlight Mission Planner (e.g. for a Riegl Scanner)


Tutorial #6 - Creating a point density map

Tutorial video explaining the creation of a point density map in TopoFlight Mission Planner (e.g. for a Riegl Scanner)


Tutorial #7 - Creating a MTA zones map

Tutorial video explaining the creation of a MTA zones map in TopoFlight Mission Planner (e.g. for a Riegl Scanner)


Tutorial #8 - Creating a GSD map

Tutorial video explaining the creation of a GSD map using TopoFlight Mission Planner for the visualisation of the resolution of the images on ground


Tutorial #9 - Import of a XYZOPK-File

Tutorial video explaining how to import a XYZOPK-File in TopoFlight Mission Planner for the visualisation of the capture points of the images


Tutorial #10 - Creating a sidelap map
Tutorial Video explaining the creation of a sidelap map using TopoFlight Mission Planner for the visualisation of the coverage between the flight lines


Tutorial #11 - Calculating costs

Tutorial video explaning calculating costs of a flight plan using TopoFlight Mission Planner


Tutorial #12 - Creating an image displacement map
Tutorial video explaining the creation of an image displacement map using TopoFlight Mission Planner


Tutorial #13 - Changing the design of a flightplan
Tutorial video explaining the changing of the design of a flightplan in TopoFlight Mission Planner


Tutorial #14 - Creating a new sensor definition of a Riegl sensor

If you are using Riegl RiParameter software to define the sensor configuration for different point densities you can copy the parameters into a TopoFlight Riegl sensor configuration.


Tutorial #15 - Editing the sensor database or the sensor definition file
This tutorial video explains the differences between editing the sensor database and editing the sensor definition file of a project.


Tutorial #16 - Checking speed and image sequence time
Each camera needs a minimal time between images. This tutorial shows how we can proof if this minimal time is reached with a given ground speed of the airplane.


Tutorial #17 - Constant altitude vs. terrain following
This tutorial shows the differences between the planning for flight lines on constant altitude and height above ground.


Highlights of TopoFlight Mission Planner (automatic editing)
This demo shows how a flight plan can automatically be done using TopoFlight Mission Planner.


Highlights of TopoFlight Mission Planner (manual editing)

This demo shows how a flight plan can manually be done using TopoFlight Mission Planner.
