mdMAPPER1000DG Package

The mdMapper1000DG package is an advanced aerial surveying and mapping solution that uses direct georeferencing (DG) to deliver highly accurate data collection without the use of ground control points. The on-board IMU measures orientation angles, for precision corridor mapping which allows the UAV to cover more ground, more quickly. Efficiency is further enhanced with the GNSS-aided inertial post-processing software.
