DJI Inspire, 3D GIS Survey Tests with DroneDeploy.com and GemVR

In this video, we take the DJI Inspire for a couple of test flights to gather 4K photos to use for a 3D geographic survey. Along for the ride was a 360Fly VR “witness camera” to document things as we went along. We applied image stabilization and color/exposure balancing in post to make the 360 video a bit easier to watch — as the 360 camera was not on a gimbal.  DroneDeploy.com is a very cool service that allows for automatic flight planning and survey capture, and then they process the footage taken on their cloud to produce a myriad of GIS data such as elevation maps, stitched ultra-high-resolution orthophotos, and 3D maps.
