3.1 DroneNaksha Service

  • For the first time logging in, click on DroneNaksha, then you will be able to see all the informative pages about the DroneNaksha service.

  • You can close the pop-up by clicking on the close button which is on the top right corner.

  • You can toggle between the next and previous window by clicking on the next/previous arrow button.

You can start using DroneNaksha by organizing your data in projects, image sets, etc. By creating different image sets in plans, you can organize huge data.

After organizing your data in form of images, now be ready to process your data with just one click on the 'Process' button.

Now, the results are available which you can view on the map. It allows you to visualize the orthomosaics, DSM, DTM  ,3D, PointCloud and different vegetation indices.

Orthomosaic: These are geotagged or raw images that are used for various processing purposes. Without having to physically be on the job site, construction businesses can use these systems to measure stockpile volume, estimate material costs, and collect other relevant data. It is another useful tool for construction organizations that will be useful to make 3D models with raw data from aerial photographs.

Vegetation Index: A vegetation index (VI) is a spectral calculation that highlights vegetative features by combining two or more bands of light. It allows the observer to compare photosynthetic activity across your area of interest in a field of crops.

After having results, you can now proceed with the surface models view which will make it easy to visualize high-resolution complex model images such as DSM, and DTM.

  • DSM – A DSM captures the natural and built features on the Earth’s surface. It is useful in 3D modeling for telecommunications, urban planning, and aviation. DSM can be used to determine runaway obstructions in approach zone, in aviation. DSMs can see where and how much vegetation is encroaching along a transmission line for vegetation management. Building tops, trees and plants, powerlines, and any other items recognized by the sensing method are included in digital surface models. These are important for urban/city planning and landscape modeling.

  • DTM – Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and graphical representations benefit greatly from DTMs. They're employed in flood and drainage modeling, land-use studies, geographic applications, earth-work construction, and other applications.

  • DEM - A Digital Elevation Model (DEM) is a representation of the Earth's bare ground (bare earth) topographic surface without trees, buildings, or other surface objects.

DroneNaksha also supports a powerful tool to compare your results. You can compare imagery data with any other form.

GCP: Ground Control Points

GCPs are points that a surveyor can precisely pinpoint in an aerial mapping survey: huge areas can be accurately mapped with just a few known coordinates. Ground control points might be anything visible in the photos. They usually resemble a little checkerboard piece. The form eliminates any doubt about where a ground control point's 'point' is. Just to get it noticed immediately they are always either black and white or of high contrast patterns. Traditional surveying methods, LiDAR, or an existing map - even Google Earth - may have been used to measure these points.

DroneNaksha allows you to edit the GCP points to make the workflow very easy and simple.

Now you can track and control your processing tasks from a single window.

3.2 DroneNaksha Dashboard

The dashboard will allow the user to perform the operations related to projects such as:

Recently created activities are displayed on the top of the dashboard as "Recent Activity" as shown in the above image. Every icon displayed here has information associated with it such as type of activity like plan, imageset, etc., name of the activity, respective name of project and date of creation. The list can be scrolled using forward and backward arrows.

The user may have the list of projects, plans, imagesets and maps as shown in the above image. According to the selection, the respective list will be displayed.

This functionality gives the flexibility to search imageset or plan or map easily. It helps to find out the processed maps easily.
