Open source mapping database

by SyncPoint | February 06, 2015 19:45 06 Feb 19:45 | #11558 | #11558

What I want to do:

share my created mapping database for feedback, analyses and education

My attempt and results

my attempt is to create a universal automated quadcopter mapper, a scientific gopro-like attachment. Currently I am regularly monitoring a specific area at a regular interval.

Questions and next steps

my question is if there are any people inside the community that would benefit from my database, and if so, I would make my private datasets public.

Why I'm interested

This project of mine is meant as a master thesis project. however i have taken it a lot further and now i am wondering if there is any demand for these types of datasets.

Can you share more detail about the "cientific gopro-like attachment" Looks good. Are you using two cameras or one?? Nice pictures of the botanical garden in utrecht

Is this a question? Click here to post it to the Questions page.

Yes the pictures are of the botanical garden, it is my favourite testing ground since it has all difficult terrain aspects condensed into a small area. About the details of the sensor i will share when i am done. for now i will just post results occaisionaly. I was planningto do it weekly but i see no interest in the database.
