AeroTopoL is the only operational GIS-based Mission Planning and Flight Management System on the market. Beside full GIS functionality, it uses a Wizard to guide user-friendly through the different planning and navigation features.
AeroTopoL enables many import and export formats for raster and vector data, as well as many coor- dinate systems. Data from different geodetic datum can be re-projected on the fly.
AeroTopoL supports any frame based analogue or digital camera and calculates also the expected accuracy of the project. With AeroTopoL-DTM the terrain is taken into account in computing adjusted footprints. Analysis of overlaps during planning help to select the best places for GCPs. Different editing-tools help to optimize the mission.
For navigation virtual avionic instruments give the pilot precise guidance and the operator information of the captures and the camera and stabilizer status. The virtual instruments can be adjusted accor- ding sensitivity, outlook and zoom functions.
In real-time AeroTopoL computes the image coverage using terrain-height, flight-altitude, camera-pa- rameters and rotation angles. Analysis of the overlaps provides feedback about the required cove- rage.
AeroTopoL delivers a detailed log of the completed mission as well as the files needed for photogram- metric processing. AeroTopoL supports full heading compensation using AeroStab stabilizer.
