Master List of Drone Laws (Organized by State & Country) DanSmigrod 2 2 monthsChemistrydoc (936): Yes, our local municipalities in Coastal Alabama are trying to outdo one another in being the strictest in laws that restrict commercial flights. On top of that, we have many real estate photographers that don't even have a Part 107 license! Many laws, no ability for consistent enforcement. I point out the liability consequences to every realtor who will listen, but they still hire the unlicensed photographers. The City of Orange Beach has...

Video: 10 Unique Features of the DJI Inspire 2 DanSmigrod 3 3 monthsJwbuckl (170): The low light capabilities of the Inspire 2's optional X5s and X7 cameras are far and away better than that of any of the other DJI offerings. The X5s is a micro 4/3rds sensor and the X7 is a Super 35 sensor. You can (and I have) film Hollywood films with this drone. The Inspire 2 is likely overkill for most real estate photography/videography and besides, it grabs an audience in the sky when maybe you don't really want to draw too much...

Drone Mapping CFster 4 4 monthsWingman (421): There is nothing to navigate with in a 3d mapped model. It is just a 3D model and there is no way to walk through it. It can be used in architecture and 3d design and it also provides volumetric measurements of anything captured. Technically you can measure a pile of dirt on a ground that will help your customer to estimate how much trucks they need to move it from a site. And it is different from Matterport as in 3D mapping GPS coordinates...
How to use a pole for an "aerial" shot in lieu of a Drone or No Fly Zone DanSmigrod 4 4 monthsWingman (421): I cannot see how you can picture something big with a pole. May be a better solution is to buy a tethering system or a drone that already comes with it. Tethering systems are usually a quite simple device but I know some company that asks $10 000. It comes with supplying power for a drone though so you can stay in the air for hours. But I have seen a relatively inexpensive drone that comes with it. Try youtube to find it. I cannot recall...

Demo and Discussion: GeoCV versus Matterport DanSmigrod 2 4 monthsMetroplex360 (9194): GeoCV is a bit too bright and saturated. Matterport is a bit too dark and undersaturated. Nodal View is yellow and has an old fashioned UI with a strangely placed spinning dollhouse (how did that get there?) There's no perfect one, but between the two 3D tours -- with GeoCV, you have the option to download your imagery. If you wanted to, you could darken the tour a bit and desaturate it and end up with something pretty spot on.
Aerial 3D Models with Drone Deploy for GeoCV Metroplex360 18 4 monthsMetroplex360 (9194): The custom HTML code is great. With Mattertags, you are limited to the vendors provided by Embed.ly. While Embed.ly does have an exhaustive list of providers, few actually solve the problems listed by Anton above. Pins are great!
DJI Introduces DJI Terra To Capture, Visualize And Analyze Drone 2D/3D Data DanSmigrod 5 4 monthsizoneguy (306): Yeah, I have been on mac since 2006. Got tired of the BSOD and re-building hard drives. Maybe PC's don't do that anymore? LOL
Pix4D versus DroneDeploy DanSmigrod 6 4 monthsWingman (421): Pix4d has a capture app that can make an orbiting fly path around a property but it may be better just to do it manually. And to do it manually there is no need in any of these apps. I agree with FunN4Lo these apps and services mostly for 3d mapping with drones and they are not cheap. If somebody still wants to create a 3D model of a property you can try this software https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=81&v=k4NTf0hMjtY ...

Tip: How to create a 3D aerial fly-in with DroneDeploy and GeoCV DanSmigrod 7 5 monthsAntonYakubenko (604): I doubt it would work. As I described above, shooting for 3D model extraction from aerial images using photogrammetry requires many images all around the house taken with large overlap. I doubt externally sourced imagery would be sufficient. Moreover we require regular images, not 360 panos for 3D model extraction. 360 panos though could be used as Highlights and Fly-through in addition to 3D scan.

Question of the Day: which drone do you recommend for a newbie? DanSmigrod 4 1 yearMetroplex360 (9194): As a newbie with some pretty nice drone photos from my past six months, I'm pretty bullish on the DJI Mavic.

Best way to scan hotel with many buildings?! advancedhdr 6 1 yearrpetersn (1882): Hi @3dvirtualview - Thanks for the message. If you are using a custom domain, or subdomain, within ThreeSixty Tours you should see some of that SEO value return to your primary domain.

Satellite Panoramas rzphotoman 8 1 yearrzphotoman (1183): @DanSmigrod I'm not really blaming anybody and after thinking about it a little more, even if the first one you buy isn't exactly what you need, more than likely you could use it and probably not a bad idea to have a second and maybe even a third angle, especially for projects that aren't single family residences. If that's the case it's still less expensive than to hire a drone photographer. I still think a preview would be a good idea. ...
