Autonomous drones can fly and take pictures according to the set route planning. Autel EVO II drones need to be used in conjunction with the Autel Explorer App. Plan in the Autel Explorer App to see the rectangular and polygonal mission planners.
Using drone photogrammetry is a great way to take advantage of the autonomous capabilities of your drone, capturing a large number of images and uploading them to your preferred 3d mapping software.
