The white paper’s content covers:

  • Why higher camera resolution doesn’t guarantee higher ground resolution
  • How ground sampling distance (GSD) is calculated
  • Solutions to increasing pixel width in aerial imaging
  • The definitions of sensitivity and noise
  • How sensitivity and noise impact aerial imaging
  • Global versus rolling shutters for aerial imaging
  • Dynamic range and bit depth requirements
  • Additional considerations for drone camera systems, such as electronic shutters, conformal coating for PCBs, and SWaP (size, weight and power)
